VANCOUVER, I was recently invited to the University of British Columbia (UBC) to give a keynote address about obstetric fistula as part of the Africa Awareness Initiative Conference Week 2018. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Kwezi, Towela and the entire AAI team for their heart-warming welcome and a fantastic two days at the conference! I'd like to thank Ikheyla as well for her amazing support!
