Seeking feedback to form a population representative sexual health survey instrument: Open call from WHO

12 October, 2019

Hello all,

Please see the message below received from Lianne Gonsalves, from WHO.

Dear colleagues,

We would very much appreciate it if you could forward this call to relevant networks/colleagues in your area.

WHO/HRP and partners are looking for sexual/reproductive health researchers to provide creative ideas that will be used to develop a standardized sexual health survey instrument. Individuals who contribute highly ranked ideas and have relevant experience will be supported to join a 72-hour WHO/HRP hackathon in January, 2020. The hackathon will finalize the sexual health survey instrument and plan next steps. We are particularly interested in submissions from researchers in low and middle-income countries. Details of the open call are available on the WHO/HRP website [ and the deadline for entries is October 24th, 2019. Any questions can be directed to Lianne Gonsalves at

Many thanks,

Lianne Gonsalves on behalf of the Steering Committee
