Regional Approach overview:
Share-Net International (SNI) is a knowledge platform on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). It is a membership network of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), researchers, policymakers, implementers, advocates, students, the media and companies operating in the SRHR field, working closely with a wide range of partners across the globe. During one of the strategic meetings in 2020, SNI and its four country hubs in Bangladesh, Burundi, Jordan and the Netherlands discussed the regional approach. The platform aims to implement the approach in the next four years with a common vision, in three phases.
Share-Net Bangladesh has now been operational for 6 years. We have has a large network of 1425 individual members and 104 member organisations. For the regional approach, Share-Net Bangladesh is going to explore the South Asian region.
