The most vibrant knowledge platform on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), Share-Net International (SNI) is going to organize it’s biannual conference this year from 25-28 January and 3 February. The theme of the conference this year is Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for Adolescents and Youth and it is organised by the country hub in Bangladesh.

Ambassador to the Royal Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Harry Verweij will be present at the opening session of the conference as Guest of Honour.

Initially, the conference was supposed to be hosted in a dynamic venue of Dhaka city. However, the ongoing pandemic forced the organizers to host it virtually. The host organization of Share-Net Bangladesh, Red Orange Media and Communications, developed a dynamic and interactive online platform (the web link). This will provide a unique opportunity for the participants joining from all over the world to participate in this prestigious meaningful event.

Arnob Chakrabarty, managing director of Red Orange, said the conference would be a bit different from other conferences. It will be a working conference, the knowledge acquired in a scientific way will be documented in the co-creation mechanism and there will be an opportunity for grants on the proposed topic.

This conference is a working conference, more than 100 researchers, policymakers, NGOs, funding organisations, the media and practitioners from all over the world are expected to join and work together to co-create knowledge products on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) for Adolescents and Youth. The knowledge products will be used at the national and global levels to influence policy and practice.

As the focus of this year is “SRHR for Youth and Adolescents”, aligned with the Sustainable Development Goal 3, good health and wellbeing, the conference will explore the possibilities of universal access to sexual and reproductive health services as well as incorporating such services into national strategies. The Youth-friendly SRH services and information to reduce teenage pregnancies and related maternal mortality will be at the centre of discussion. Also, to prevent risky sexual behaviour among adolescents, correct information about SRHR through social media and youth clubs, child marriage, sexual orientation, equal opportunities, menstrual health management (MHM), use of media for communication, helpdesks will fabricate the discussion and will be reflected in the upcoming knowledge products. The most attractive part of the conference is the offer of small grants for the eligible knowledge products.
