Exhibition: Towards happier birth days

Every year we celebrate our day of birth and the mother who brought us into the world.

Exploring attitudes and approaches to improving the health of babies, girls, and women around the world and over time, this exhibition in the Keppel Street lobby highlights work at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine’s Centre for Maternal, Reproductive and Child Health (MARCH).

Happier Birth Days are dependent on improving the health of babies, girls, and women worldwide:

  • Healthier birth days mean women survive childbirth, crucial for families, and communities.
  • For babies, the birth day is the day of greatest risk of death and long term disability – improved newborn health and survival is key for stronger communities.
  • Empowering girls and women to avoid unplanned pregnancies allows completion of education and more economic productivity.

The exhibition runs from 23 April to Mid-July.

We have a special private viewing for alumni, featuring a talk by Joy Lawn, the Director of MARCH, on Thursday 20 June from 17.45 to 18.45. You can book your place online at http://alumnionline.lshtm.ac.uk/events-homepage
