International Training Program in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
The advanced international training programme in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) runs during 2014-2018 in selected countries in Asia and Africa, with funds from Sida (the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency).
The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) has commissioned top ranked Lund University to carry out an advanced training programme in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
The overall objective of the training programme is to develop capacity among potential future leaders and managers in the field of SRHR in the participating countries to design and implement high quality satisfactory SRHR services and information for the population. The programme is primarily directed towards mid-career obstetricians, gynecologists and midwives but also towards policymakers, program managers and civil society organizations/private sector at national and regional level (applicants from INGOs are not eligible). An important aspect of the programme is the change project that participants design, develop and implement in collaboration with their organisations and through the support of a supervisor from Lund University.
We are currently in the process of recruiting participants for the 11th programme starting in August 2018. The countries eligible to apply for this round are: Kenya, Myanmar, South Sudan, Liberia and Zambia.
The training programme is free of charge and Sida will cover the international travel costs, hotel accommodation and a meal allowance to cover self-sustained cooked meals. All participants who complete the programme with a passing grade will be awarded a certificate of 22,5 university credits from Lund University.
