Southeast Asia Junction, which aims to foster understanding and appreciation of Southeast Asia, is holding a closed event, “Southeast Asian Learning Exchange on Sexual and Reproductive Health”, at the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre tomorrow (March 5) from 2 to 5pm.

This learning exchange is a programme of the Forum for Family Planning and Development of the Philippines and is part of a weeklong study tour for Filipino policy makers, service providers, CSOs and youth leaders from five provinces to come together to learn about effective strategies and good practices in implementing sexual and reproductive health programmes in Thailand and more generally in Southeast Asia.

The various activities in the learning exchange are designed to create a venue for participants to talk and share their own implementation of SRH programmes; observe and learn about effective strategies and good practices in programme implementation from NGO and governmentrun facilities in Thailand; gain more knowledge from SRHR experts and advocates on current and emerging SRH issues that could have policy and programme implications; strengthen the project implementation team and local partnerships as well as to network with other champions in the Southeast Asian region; and improve skills to be better SRH advocates.

A panel will give participants insights into contextual and policy issues shaping SRH approaches and interventions.

Among the speakers are Alejandro Herrin on the topic “Experiences in Advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health in The Philippines”, Wassana InAim, UNFPA deputy country representative Thailand, who will cover Thailand’s experiences, and Rosalia Sciortino from the Institute for Population and Social Research, Mahidol University and director of SEA Junction).
