Somaliland: Edna Adan Ismail's Contribution to Women's Health

The Lancet published on 3 March 2018 an article titled "Edna Adan Ismail: Midwife and Champion of Women's Health" by Sharmila Devi.

Edna, now 80 years old and once married to deceased Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Haji Ibrahim Egal, has devoted her life to women's health issues. I had the honor early this century to visit the hospital she created in Hargeisa. The article describes her contributions to women's health in the Horn of Africa.

The article is available free of charge, but you must register to see all of it.
