Dear Colleagues

Here is an update from Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters (SRHM). Please share with your networks if relevant.

A guide to rights-based knowledge creation in sexual and reproductive health

We are pleased to share our introductory guide to rights-based knowledge creation in SRHR, written by B. Subha Sri. It is meant to provide an introduction for researchers, practitioners and activists on how to use a human rights-based approach to knowledge creation in the area of sexual and reproductive health.

The guide is available at: http://www.srhm.org/rights-based-knowledge-creation_srhm2022/

Challenging the notion of evidence: bringing rights into SRHR research

On May 6, SRHM hosted a symposium in New Delhi and online on enhancing the ecosystem of rights and evidence in sexual and reproductive health. The symposium created space for dialogue on deconstructing the notion and hierarchy of evidence, pushing methodological boundaries in SRHR research, questioning power in research, and more.
