Congratulations to our partner surgeon Dr. Denis Mukwege, who was recently recognized as a College Honorary Fellow by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) at their 2015 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

Dr. Mukwege is the founder and lead surgeon at Panzi Hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of our longest-term partners. He was honored by ACOG for his pioneering work in specialized responses to sexual and gender-based violence and in advocating for the rights and empowerment of Congolese women.
