Join us for a symposium held in New Delhi and online on enhancing the ecosystem of rights and evidence in sexual and reproductive health.

It will create space for dialogue on:

Deconstructing the notion and hierarchy of evidence
Pushing methodological boundaries in SRHR research
Questioning what constitutes “evidence-based”, a “researcher”, and what is “scientifically appropriate”
Questioning power in research

The symposium will generate a vibrant discussion with people in New Delhi and others connecting virtually.

Panelists in New Delhi will include Subhasri Balakrishnan, Priya Das, Priya Nanda, and Sana Contractor from India, and Prabina Bajracharya from Sri Lanka. Global discussants connecting virtually will include Sabina Faiz Rashid and Taqbir Huda from Bangladesh, Zahra Stardust from Australia, Ana Cristina Gonzalez from Colombia (TBC), Allan Maleche from Kenya, Esther Corona from Mexico, and Avni Amin from Switzerland.

The symposium will be moderated by Eszter Kismődi, Sundari Ravindran and Sapna Desai.
