SRHR, Sexuality and Gender Training in Bangladesh

Published on:

This project aims to strengthen education and training on gender and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in Bangladesh. One specific objective is the development, piloting and fine tuning of flagship courses on SRHR, sexuality and gender at the Centre for Gender and SRHR of the James P. Grant School of Public Health (JPGSPH) at BRAC University.

Vocational training to promote SRHR

Most capacity building on health, population and education services in Bangladesh is medically-oriented and focused on reproduction. Vocational training of health staff and frontline workers on gender, sexuality and human rights is meanwhile substandard. These projects support the development of both TVET and academic courses on SRHR, sexuality and gender.

In collaboration with CREA, KIT is supporting the design and piloting of two flagship courses on SRHR, sexuality and gender. These courses aim to connect theory and practice, and to promote a sexuality, gender and rights perspective on SRHR issues in Bangladesh.

They are designed both for those engaged in strategy and policy making, and lobby and advocacy at a national, regional or international level, as well as practitioners and frontline workers in Bangladesh.

Services delivered

  • Training, Coaching & Education

    KIT Royal Tropical Institute provides tailor-made training to clients such as educational and research institutes, NGOs and local or national governments and ministries across the globe. Our programmes are specifically designed to address the unique objectives and capacities of the requesting organisation. For example, one of the challenges faced by an NGO in Afghanistan was how to effectively reach women in its programme as well as how to recruit and retain female staff. KIT designed a training on gender mainstreaming and health governance to address this and other challenges faced by the NGO.  We also offers Masters programmes and advanced courses designed to equip health professionals with the skills and expertise necessary to address public health challenges around the world. By bringing together people from different countries and regions, KIT’s international courses create a forum for linking and exchanging experiences among a broad range of development practitioners.  Finally, through training, consultancy and coaching services, KIT’s Intercultural Professionals unit provides a comprehensive approach to effective intercultural communication and cooperation. By demonstrating the value of cultural awareness and sensitivity, culture-specific insights and intercultural competencies, Intercultural Professionals helps NGOs, governments, corporate entities, leaders & professionals to enhance their business offering and integrate inclusive policies into their global or local operations.
