I was saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Catherine Hamlin on March 18th 2020. Dr. Hamlin was a renowned obstetric fistula surgeon and a revolutionary human being who dedicated her life to giving marginalized women access to the maternal health services they deserve. She was also a great inspiration to my life.
