Lou Dierick is a co-founder of ICRH Kenya and has worked at management level in Mombasa from 2004 onwards.

From October 2012 on, ICRH’s founder, driving force and director Prof. Marleen Temmerman will take up a position as director of the Department of Reproductive Health and Research. As a consequence of this high-level appointment, which she considers as ‘a great honour and a great challenge’, Marleen will renounce many of her numerous mandates, including her position as senator in the Belgian parliament. We are very happy that she will however stay connected to Ghent University and ICRH.
