Human Dignity: a medical professional's perspective
Date : Tuesday 28 th April 2015
Venue : The Phoenicia Hotel, Valletta
Time : 7:30 pm
Kindly sponsored by APS Bank on behalf of ‘World Youth Alliance’
“Effective ways of promoting human dignity” has been conceived in order to generate awareness of initiatives that promote human dignity in an effective and creative way.
The main speaker of the event is Anna Halpine, founder of the World Youth Alliance and CEO of Fertility Education and Medical Management (FEMM) Foundation - an organization dedicated to a knowledge-based health programme for women.
Lord Nicholas Windsor, an active promoter of human dignity initiatives, will figure as guest of honour and will introduce Anna’s work.
The event is focused on two initiatives: the Human Dignity Curriculum (HDC) and FEMM. The HDC offers an alternative approach to the sexual education guidelines developed by the World Health Organization. FEMM adopts a holistic approach to women's healthcare, encouraging them towards a greater understanding of their hormonal health and into making better-informed choices regarding family planning without necessarily having recourse to artificial contraception.
These initiatives are grounded in an innovative approach, using language designed to be attractive to all who agree on the innate value of the human person
