Strengthening access to and quality of reproductive health services in humanitarian settings



Maternal, Infant & Sexual and Reproductive Health in the Developing World: A Conference for Volunteer Clinicians


Sexual and reproductive health is always of critical importance, and never more so than in the developing world. The aim of the day is to communicate and summarize key points and guidelines for each topic and to set priorities to ensure that volunteers understand and engage in promoting key interventions as outlined by WHO to improve SRH. It will reflect the challenges and opportunities of working in a sector with such skill-mix and diversity and provide insights into dealing sensitively with local customs and practices.


The fee of £220.00 includes all refreshments and a buffet lunch. A discounted rate of £175.00 currently applies.
