Scaffold presented to Prof. dr. Marleen Temmerman

On 16 March, Mieke, Olivia and Sofie had the honour of presenting the SCAFFOLD ePortfolio to Prof. dr. Marleen Temmerman. She listened with interest and complimented the research group with this beautiful project. Marleen was particularly interested in how this ePortfolio can be useful in an international perspective, more specifically in developing countries. She suggested that international recognition of the tool should be sought, such as through a WHO endorsement or recognition by a US Medical University.

Marleen is professor emeritus of obstetrics and gynaecology UGent, is director of the Centre of Excellence in Women and Child Health and chair of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at Aga Khan University East Africa in Nairobi, and of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Chair on Youth Leadership in Science, Health, Gender and Education. Before that, she was director of the Reproductive Health and Research Division of the World Health Organisation.
