Gender norms and inequalities have considerable impact on maternal and
child health (MCH) outcomes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Child marriage and
discriminations against women and girls are contributing to maternal
mortality and poor birth statistics in the region, as women's limited
control over family resources, and other social factors, impede uptake
of antenatal services. As the current Minister of Gender and
Development in Zambia, and former Minister of Health, Professor Nkandu
Luo is fighting to improve MCH outcomes in Zambia through
gender-integrated programs and interventions. This presentation and
informal conversation with Professor Luo will focus on effective
policy measures and strategies for strengthening actions on-the-ground
and improve the lives of women in many parts of Africa. Also, given
the considerable global and Canadian government focus on MCH in recent
years, the discussion will shed light on how best foreign actors and
academic institutions can participate in addressing related challenges.

Honorable Professor Nkandu Luo is the current Minister of Gender and
Development in Zambia. She has also previously served as Minister of
Health, Minister of Transport and Communications, Minister of Local
Government and Housing, and Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs.
> She was the first woman Professor of microbiology and immunology in
> Zambia and has served as Head of Pathology and Microbiology at the
> University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, Zambia. Apart from her
> training in Microbiology and Immunology, she pursued studies in
> Immunopathology of infectious Diseases and Epidemiology and Medical
> Statistics. At the same time, she has been active in developing a
> range of programs in Zambia.

For example, she established the National AIDS Control program which
was later transformed to the National AIDS Council. She also
established Zambia's National Blood Transfusion Services; Voluntary
Counselling Services (VCT); and the Prevention of Mother to Child
Transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) program. She has published many
articles in various journals, contributed to books on HIV/AIDS, TB,
Malaria and other infectious diseases. She has spoken at many
international conferences and forums on a range of development topics,
but in particular, issues on gender, HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria and other
infectious diseases around the world. She is also the founder of the
Tasintha Program, an organisation that Transforms sex workers, the
Society for Women and AIDS in Zambia (SWAAZ), a program that has been
working on women and children's issues in the light of the HIV/AIDS
