Summary: More than 300,000 compared to less than 30,000 perinatal and maternal deaths: this is the current discrepancy that exists in maternal-child health between the global North and South. While the problem is multifaceted, Wolfgang Holzgreve, having pioneered fetal and stem cell research and as officer of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, or FIGO, attempts to bring political awareness to this global crisis. In this video lecture from the 2010 Falling Walls Conference, Holzgreve encourages a coordinated effort of international and professional organizations, NGOs, and national governments to mirror the success of vaccination campaigns. Hozgreve is the author of over 500 articles, 180 book chapters, and 6 books; and the recipient of the prestigious Maternite prize and the Liley Medal.
