Salamander Trust was delighted to be part of the launch of the “Rights, Camera, Action” films launch at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
The event was hosted by Professor Lesley Regan, Vice-President in charge of Strategic Development of the College, who is also Co-Chair of the Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Rights Committee of FIGO. It was organised by Positively UK, in liaison with the College.
The Speakers at the Launch
The films* showcase the work of Positively UK’s ground-breaking “From Pregnancy to Baby and Beyond” project, which is created and led by women living with HIV who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth whilst knowing about their HIV status. This peer mentor programme provides support for other women with HIV, either newly diagnosed during pregnancy or wishing to have a child, once already diagnosed.
*Film-trainer and anthropologist Dr Dominique Chadwick of Social Films led the film training programme, with support from Salamander Trust Associate Nell Osborne. (They were sadly unable to attend the launch because they were running our next training programme in Uganda at the time…)
Salamander Trust is delighted to play a role in showcasing this world- class programme.
