Celebrating women’s health with Art

“A Beautiful Expression – Celebrating Women” exhibition was opened on Tuesday June 26th 2012 at the Marie Stops International Ethiopia (MSIE) office. The exhibition showcased painting, photography, poetry, dance and music from female artists.

The exhibition celebrates the opening of the new MSIE Choice Clinic which aims to serve women across the world.

“Too often campaigns in this field give hopeless and violent images of maternal health. We want to show the positive message of women as they create conditions that promote life and development in their community,” stated Nils Gade, Country Director of MSIE.

Choice Clinic is the newest addition to the strong network of 30 clinics providing family planning and maternal health services in Ethiopia. Choice Clinic aims to raise the standards for maternal health service delivery by providing a health facility with the latest technology and best practices. Clients can book an appointment at the clinic by calling a toll free number.

With the opening of the Choice Clinic, we want women to demand the highest standard of maternal health care from the non-profit and private sector. Choice Clinic will be a model in that direction,” said Abeba Shibru, Director of Programs.

Choice Clinic’s launch was attended by advocates of maternal health from the development and private sector.
