        Making Women's Health a Priority

        Wide Angle host Aaron Brown interviews Dr. Margaret Chan (Director-General of the World Health Organization- WHO) about a program which trains midwives to perform surgeries during pregnancy and childbirth in Mozambique, a country suffering from a shortage of doctors. Chan discusses the importance of targeting health initiatives toward sub Saharan Africa and women and highlights the role that governments should play in improving health care.
