maternal health as a human right’s issue.

Shona Hamilton

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In September 2010, just days before a crucial UN summit to review progress on the MDGs, chair of the RCM board for Northern Ireland Shona Hamilton participated in Amnesty International’s conference on poverty, health and human rights, held at Stormont. She provided great personal insight into the daily lives of women in some of the world’s poorest regions and the role midwives can play in addressing the disproportionate impact of poverty on women. She was accompanied by midwifery teaching fellow at Queen’s University Shirley Stronge who has experience of working in Malawi and Ethiopia.
