Research conference on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in Africa

The project Strengthening Education and Training Capacity in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Uganda (SET-SRHR) in conjunction with Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH), the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (ISS-EUR) and Rutgers will host a Regional Conference on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Entebbe, Uganda.

The aim of the conference is to promote and strengthen the interconnectedness of research, training, policy and practice to contribute towards the attainment of universal access to SRHR in Africa.

To that end, the conference will provide a platform to varied actors (researchers, trainers, policy makers, practitioners and advocates) to discuss and disseminate the outcomes of their programmes to larger audiences.

In addition, the conference will provide an opportunity for participants to reflect on innovations and lessons from the field and how these can help expand access to SRHR services to diverse groups of people in Africa. Finally, it will provide opportunity for strengthening partnerships and collaboration in the areas of SRHR research, training, policy making, programming and advocacy.

The conference will feature a broad range of sessions including high level panel discussions, keynote speeches, abstract driven presentations and plenary sessions. Satellite presentations and exhibitions will provide opportunity for professional development and networking. Conference proceedings will be published and disseminated widely. Invited regional researchers will collaborate with Researchers from Uganda to write comparative papers for the second edited volume of the project.
