Call for inputs
WHO and partners are calling civil society organisations, agencies and partners working on the health and human rights of women, children and adolescents to provide inputs to a High-Level Working Group of Health and Human Rights of Women, Children and Adolescents by 6 November 2016.
Request for Proposals (RFPs)
Evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) indicates that exposure of preterm infants to antenatal corticosteroids (ACS) reduces neonatal morbidity and mortality. The most critical and essential preconditions to achieve clinical benefits from ACS, however, are uncertain. There is a clear need, however, to establish through a high quality trial, the conditions under which ACS could be used to achieve benefit and minimize harm in health-care facilities in lower-income country settings. WHO and HRP are therefore conducting a two-arm, parallel, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial of ACS for women in preterm labour at facilities in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to improve newborn outcomes.
Call for intention of interest:
The HRP Special Programme submits its research projects for consideration, comment, guidance and approval to an established advisory body of international experts to assess each project’s scientific design, as well as technical and financial/budgetary aspects. HRP research projects cover all topic areas of sexual and reproductive health and includes projects that involve human participants, involve biological material obtained from human participants, obtain information from human participants, access records on human participants or involve experiments in animals. The type of research under consideration is not restricted and includes: basic, biomedical, epidemiological, social science, as well as operations, implementation, health systems and programme development research.

WEBINAR - Providing an integrated SRHR/HIV health sector response to violence against women and girls
October 17th - 15:30-17:00 (Geneva Time) / 9:30-11:00 (Washington Time)
In support of the implementation of the Global plan of action to strengthen the role of the health system within a national multisectoral response to address interpersonal violence, in particular against women and girls and against children, WHO convenes this webinar exploring how to provide an integrated SRHR/HIV health sector response to violence against women and girls.
With one in three women globally experiencing intimate partner violence and/or sexual violence by a non-partner, the “Global plan of action to strengthen the role of the health system within a national multisectoral response to address interpersonal violence, in particular against women and girls and against children provides a strong mandate to address violence against women and girls as a global and urgent public health problem.
