On 26 September, Embassy of Sweden, Section Office in Yangon was happy to host alumnis from the Sida financed Advanced International Training Programme (ITP) on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) together with Lund University. The purpose of the meeting was to launch the Myanmar network among the ITP SRHR alumni.
The group discussed how they collectively can raise awareness on SRHR in Myanmar, using the expertise and knowledge which they have learnt from the training programme. The meeting ended up by discussing future plans and activities of the ITP SRHR Myanmar National Network, such as how to advocate for Comprehensive Sexual Education in Schools. The Section Office sees this group of about 20 alumnis as a strong ally and resource in the uphill battle of raising the bar on SRHR in Myanmar.
