Final conference on sexual and reproductive health and rights

27
Aug 2020

10.00 Hrs - 15.00 Hrs CEST
Virtual conference

Young people want to be actively involved in shaping the future of their sexual and reproductive health and rights. As policymakers, researchers, human rights advocates, and public health practitioners - we need to empower their participation. This was the key finding of research carried out by NWO-WOTRO Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Programme, supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. The research supported twelve projects across three countries.

Researchers from Bangladesh, Burundi and Jordan will join the conference to:

  • Share their research findings through documentaries and films on interactive panels
  • Discuss the challenges of conducting research in difficult settings such as refugee camps, or with young girls
  • Discuss the links between SRHR and wider development issues such as economic fragility and inclusion
