Conference Sessions

Wednesday, November 14

10:25 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
Session 2.1.12 Gender, Empowerment, and Sexual and Reproductive Health
Defining and Advancing Gender Competencies for Family Planning Service Providers: A Competency Framework

Advances in family planning have focused largely on increasing the availability of services and expanding accessibility for women. But decisions about if, when, and how often to reproduce or follow through on a chosen method is intrinsically tied to gender norms and attitudes that influence client’s behavior. Likewise, family planning service providers have their own gender biases and perceptions. This presentation will focus on the Gender Competency Framework for Family Planning Service Providers developed by HRH2030 Program in collaboration with USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health.

  Presenter: Samantha Law, Global Health Manager, HRH2030/Chemonics
Location: Auditorium Club 1, Kigali Convention Centre
2:35 p.m. – 3:55 p.m.
Session 2.3.1 Case Studies on Adaptation of the Training Resource Package (TRP) for Family Planning
Training Resource Package: Documentation of Experiences on Use in the Field

HRH2030 conducted a review on the utilization of the TRP to show that it is an important global resource for countries to develop, update, and strengthen their family planning guidelines, curricula, and training. Respondents were stakeholders from international organizations supporting family planning globally, regionally, and nationally as well as ministries of health and education, local organizations, and master trainers. Findings demonstrated that TRP materials are used in 34 countries, help providers save time, are easily adaptable for training, and help fill information gaps in family planning.

  Presenter: Emma Clark, Director, Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health, HRH2030/Chemonics
