WELCOME LETTER Welcome from the President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Dear Colleagues, On behalf of the University of Cape Town and the RCOG, I would like to welcome you to this beautiful city for the 2017 RCOG World Congress. This is the first time the Congress has been held in Africa and I am delighted to welcome delegates from 22 African countries across this great continent, the highest African contingent for any RCOG Congress to date. I am particularly excited to be here because the RCOG is delivering a wide variety of global health programmes providing training in emergency obstetric skills and essential gynaecological skills across Africa. Moreover, our Leading Safe Choices pilot programme is now well underway in both Cape Town and Tanzania. Working closely with our colleagues in both countries we are delivering training in Post-Partum Family Planning (PPFP) and Comprehensive Abortion and Post abortion Care, promoting best-practice, improving skills and raising the standing of reproductive and sexual health workers. This World Congress will be a truly global event with well over 2,000 delegates expected from around 70 countries and promises to be a unique opportunity for networking with colleagues from every corner of the world. I hope you have a thought provoking and stimulating week, with the main programme offering six simultaneous streams, including a wide variety of topics and both national and international speakers, allowing you to tailor your Congress experience to your particular interests and clinical practice. When you have a chance, please find the time to come and visit us at the RCOG and Centre for Women’s Global Health stand in Hall 1 and meet the RCOG team. We will be on hand every break and lunch time to answer your questions about any aspects of the College’s education, standards and global health work, and the wide range of services and benefits available to you. I plan to meet many of you personally over the course of the next 4 days and on behalf of everyone involved thank you for joining us. I very much hope that you will enjoy our Congress. With best wishes,

Professor Lesley Regan President Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

WELCOME LETTER Welcome from the Co-Chairs of the Local Organising Committee Dear Friends and Colleagues On behalf of the local organising committee, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to this very special RCOG / UCT combined congress. We have delegates from more than 70 countries attending this prestigious gathering, and Cape Town offers a variety of activities for your enjoyment. It’s been 18 years since the last Royal College Scientific Meeting in South Africa, and it’s appropriate that the huge burden of disease on this continent be addressed in many of the parallel sessions on the programme. The various academic activities are extensive and hopefully will appeal to every interest, but social opportunities to interact with friends should not be neglected. We would like to thank the many people and sponsors who have worked to put this congress together, and hope that this visit to the “Tavern of seas” will stimulate a desire to return again and again.

PLENARY SPEAKERS - MONDAY Opening Ceremony Speakers: Dr Mitchell Besser Introduction: Dr Edward Coetzee and Professor Lesley Regan Location: Auditorium 1 Date: 20 March 2017 Time: 17:00 Dr Mitchell Besser Mitchell Besser founded mothers2mothers at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001. In January 2000 Besser moved to Cape Town, South Africa as a member of the University of Cape Town’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and as a consultant for the clinical rollout of Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) services at Groote Schuur Hospital. While working at Groote Schuur, Besser realised that even when PMTCT medical treatment was available, it was often less than effective because of social, emotional and psychological barriers to success. To help break through those barriers, Besser identified South Africa’s HIV-positive mothers as a “valuable, under-utilized resource.” Besser enlisted new mothers living openly with HIV/AIDS who, as Mentor Mothers, began to connect with and educate their pregnant peers about the importance of PMTCT services, disclosing their status to loved ones, and living positive lives. The result of these efforts is mothers2mothers today.

As President, Lesley’s aspirations are to build on the work she started as Vice President for Strategic Development: to increase the influence and profile of the RCOG and to ensure we become the first port of call for policy-makers, professionals, the press and the public. A key priority is developing our new Centre for Global Women’s Health, allowing us to use our expertise in education and clinical quality to improve women’s health care around the world more effectively. The new Centre will be home to the Leading Safe Choices programme RCOG, a transformational project to strengthen the competence and raise the standing of family planning professionals in South Africa and Tanzania. See the programme for opportunities to find out more about the Leading Safe Choices programme. In the UK, Professor Regan will be leading our contribution to the Maternity Transformation Programme implementation and developing our capacity to influence workforce developments. Another focus is to further build on the success of the RCOG’s Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics, ensuring we are able to translate clinical data and priorities into health policy and improved clinical practice. The College will be emphasising the importance of developing perinatal mental healthcare provision and strengthening the capacity of the NHS to provide safe and compassionate abortion services within UK law. Lesley will also continue to develop the College’s advocacy programme, building on the success of the RCOG’s International Women’s Day events on Human Rights, Domestic Violence and Maternal Mental Health. In 2015 she received an honorary fellowship of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a Doctorate of Science from University College London for her contributions to women’s health.
