Satellite Session—Improving Sexual and Reproductive Health through Workplace Interventions in South and Southeast Asia
Tuesday, 28 November
Organized by the Cambodia WorkerHealth Project (co-led by the Population Council and Marie Stopes International Cambodia and funded by USAID)
This satellite session will highlight efforts to improve access to sexual and reproductive health and rights knowledge and services for women in the South and Southeast Asia region through workplace interventions, particularly for women working in female dominated garment sectors in Cambodia, Bangladesh and Vietnam.
Presentations on unique intervention models as well as research and policy efforts in the garment sectors in these countries will highlight synergies and potential for cross-country learning and collaboration. An expert panel including donors, program implementers and researchers will discuss the way forward on enhancing effectiveness and sustainability of efforts and implementation at scale to reach millions of women employed in these productive sectors in the region.
