Invited to audit undergraduate midwifery program in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the political situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan prevented trip at the last minute. This invitation came as a result of the ongoing work I did with Dr Rafat Jan at the Aga Khan University of Pakistan which included two online presentations that I gave about midwifery in New Zealand (with Dr Jan giving a reciprocal presentation about midwifery in Pakistan) and consulting on proposal that Dr Jan presented to her faculty to develop a Bachelor of Midwifery program.
