Knowledge Fair 2019


The largest SRHR Knowledge Fair of Bangladesh took place in Dhaka on 8th December 2019. This Knowledge Fair brought together practitioners, researchers and experts from the field of SRHR to enable them to exchange their learning and share knowledge with each other. The theme of the event was ’SDG5: Gender Equality’. The aim of the event was to promote discussions on how to achieve gender equality, especially in terms of one’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The Grand Plenary titled ‘Role of Donors, Government, and the Private Sector in Advancing SDG 5, focusing on SRHR’ was the highlight of the event. This was followed by sessions where young and experienced researchers presented their papers. There was a hub dedicated exclusively to the youth to enable them to come together and formulate an action plan on how they can move forward with their SRHR demands. The event ended with a drama performance by Medicine sans Frontiers, and a dance performance by ‘Essence of Soul’, a group of transgender professional dancers. The event also showcased knowledge dissemination stalls where different organisations portrayed their work.
