The GLOSS research team –principal investigators from participating countries, PhD students leading secondary analyses, data analysts, and WHO staff– met in Rio de Janeiro on 12-13 October to discuss the preliminary results of the study. Almost 60 people were present and participated in active discussions about the findings of the study and the campaign. The group discussed plans for development of manuscripts to be published early in 2019.
Many of the GLOSS researchers stayed on for the FIGO conference, also held in Rio de Janeiro. In fact, WHO hosted special sessions and several of our colleagues presented on maternal sepsis. All sessions were recorded so make sure to check on the FIGO website for a video of the presentations.
Our colleague, Wisal Nabag from Sudan, was awarded a prize by FIGO in recognition of her work in obstetrics and gynaecology in her home country. Congratulations, Wisal!
