Remarks from the AOGU  President  In AGM and Handover

A wonderful occasion when we celebrate our transition in leadership. Today, I am happy to transfer the Authority of Presidency to the President Erect Dr Musana Othieno. All Responsibilities, privileges infrastructure including   office space. Not only that but I also hand you the human resources.

On occasions like this when we change leadership, I want to remind you that the President leads leaders because all AOGU members are leaders therefore lead with respect. Study the Psychology of members especially your executive so as to work well.

Make AOGU vibrant and consult the past presidents and other members of AOGU. The word women has a lot of meaning but for us all Members of AOGU take it like this: Women ( workers ,organizers, managers ,evaluators, Negotiators ) advocate for women.

In 1985 AOGU was born. Past presidents are your best pillars. I wish you best of Luck
To the members of the Association of Gynaecologists of Uganda.
Be the change you want to see in the world: our values Professionalism, Transparency and accountability, Responsiveness, Innovation, Dynamism, Teamwork and commitment Partnership.

Once again the Corvid 19 challenge has not broken us but made us strong.
Colleagues who are attracted to bloody money from denying babies to live. Resolve to change and save mothers lives and babies’ lives. I do not believe in safe killing in the name of safe abortion.

The voiceless baby must have us as their voices. Do not cause untold sorrow in these women who will forever regret the acts done in your hands.

Allow me to tell colleagues that “the moment you stop learning and re-learning you can better leave this world”. So keep open and get more opportunities to learn. AOGU has a Strategic plan which is a guiding document that will take us to 2024.

I believe if we build teamwork own the Association and revamp the AOGU membership we will grow and our presence will be visible not only that but out AOGU will be seen as the leader of quality reproductive health in Uganda, East Central southern Africa  {ECSACOG} and beyond
Let us continue to aim at compassionate care and knowing that it is small things we do with great love that make a difference.
I wish you a great AGM
