About 600 Rotarians and guests attended the Foundation Seminar on the 25th November, 2016 at the Hotel NH Euro, Madrid, as part of Rotary Institute. PDG Dr. Himansu Basu was invited to speak on our District’s award winning Calmed (Collaborative Action in Lowering of Maternity Encountered Deaths) maternal and child mortality reduction programme in India. The presentation was well received, especially for its comprehensive nature, global partnership and incorporating VTT “training the trainer” model. Dr. Basu was also given a booth space for explaining the programme and distributing leaflets. He is following up enquiries from European Rotarians for further collaboration and assistance with the programme. These included Chairman of the Healthy Pregnancy Healthy Children Rotarian Action Group Dr. Jan Lucas Ket from the Netherlands.
