(1970 – 2017)
The AIMS committee were very sad to hear about the death of Louise Hulton on the 31 March 2017, former AIMS secretary (from 1998 – 2001) and invaluable volunteer. Louise did a tremendous amount for women and babies and maternity care, not just within AIMS but with other organisations, and through her own campaigning. One of Louise’s greatest achievements in this area was the creation of the Hulton Framework, which was designed to keep women’s experiences at the centre of all medical care. The Hulton Framework was integrated into World Health Organisation guidelines and was a key part of the huge international reduction in maternal deaths over the past ten years.
Louise’s energy and passion for her work, and life in general, was evident to all those who met her. She is fondly remembered by those who worked with her within AIMS. We offer our sincere condolences to her husband, Rupert, and their children.
