2023. May.10 - International online conference on combating neonatal, maternal and child deaths from ionising radiation exposure around gold and uranium mines in Sud-Saharan Africa: A Medical Geology perspective - Invited speaker Dr. Theo C. Davies

The exposure of pregnant women to ionizing radiation in Sub-Saharan Africa has long been a source of concern, and many questions related to this problem still remain unanswered. There is an urgent need to study the incidence of neonatal, maternal and child deaths in areas of the Sub-Continent with high exposure to ionizing radiation exposure due to mining. It has been known that there is a high percentage of neonatal deaths due to fetal abnormalities or congenital malformations from ionizing radiation exposure in major uranium and gold mining countries where good morbidity estimates exist, e.g., South Africa.  In this seminar, we hope to demonstrate unequivocally that the inclusion of Medical Geologists in teams investigating the effects of ionizing radiation exposure on pregnancy outcomes (neonatal and child radiation-related morbidity and mortality) in major uranium and gold mining countries in Sub-South Africa can lead to much improved prognosis, diagnoses and therapy, as well as prevention and other forms of intervention, such as legal, for these conditions.
