This session aims to share experiences from three multidisciplinary collaborations within SASUF with emerging and established researchers from several universities in South Africa and Sweden. We aim to create a networking space for future research development through a knowledge exchange session followed by a capacity building workshop.

The focus of the workshop is to share experiences from the contributing SASUF sub-projects on how social science, maternal health, caring science, medicine and public health collaborations can be used to generate interdisciplinary knowledge on transcultural diversity, building resources to improve health and wellbeing of women in both countries.

PART 1 Presentations of scientific publications from two SASUF collaborations in Theme 4, focus on maternal health and challenges.
PART 2 An open discussion of multidisciplinary research ideas in womens’ health, aiming to merge climate change, natural resources and sustainability and Urbanisation and cities in the 21st Century. This part of the workshop intends to discuss ideas to further elucidate the complexity in women’s health (SASUF Theme 4), Theme 1, and Theme 5.

Keywords: Women’s health, maternal health, limited resources, climate change, sustainability
