ON-LINE FORUM: Sexual and Reproductive Health of Persons with Disabilities

Posted on 9 November 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Events and Conferences, Health, Opportunities |

The Implementing Best Practices (IBP) in Sexual and Reproductive Health Initiative will be facilitating a one-week online discussion forum from November 19 to 23, 2007. Participants will discuss the draft UNFPA-WHO Guidance Note on Sexual and Reproductive Health of Persons with Disabilities. The draft guidance note is available at http://tinyurl.com/2yrs9m (Word document, 227 Kb).

This guidance note is based on the UNFPA-WHO E-Discussion through WHO Implementing Best Practices (IBP) Knowledge Gateway in October 2007 and UNFPA-WHO Global Consultative Meeting on Sexual and Reproductive Health of Persons with Disabilities, held in Brazil in December 2007.

The guidance note from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) is meant as a guide for a broad range of individuals and professionals involved in the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) field, including those working in family planning; maternal health; HIV and AIDS; gender-based violence; child and adolescent health; the disability community; and the broader development community including UNFPA, WHO, other UN agencies, bi-lateral organizations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Individuals who wish to participate in the on-line forum may follow the link to http://my.ibpinitiative.org/public/SRHandDisabilities/ in order to register there. People who have difficulty registering may email info@ibpinitiative.org for assistance.

The IBP Initiative asks that participants review the draft UNFPA-WHO Guidance Note on Sexual and Reproductive Health of Persons with Disabilities in advance so that you can be prepared to share your feedback. The author of the Guidance Note will be leading the discussion, via email, with 4-5 questions that will be posted the week of November 19th.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
