3. Reproductive Health Priorities Conference
South Africa's Reproductive Health Research Unit will be holding the 11th Reproductive Health Priorities Conference, from 5 to 8 October 2004, at Sun City, North West Province, South Africa.
Over the years, the conference has brought together a range of stakeholders, including academics, researchers, service providers and policy makers to present, discuss and debate sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV/AIDS priorities in South Africa and the region.
Priority issues in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV/AIDS will be covered in sessions on:
- STI prevention and management
- Emergency contraception and other contraceptive issues
- Maternal mortality
- Traditional practices
The conference will create the opportunity to present original work from a range of research disciplines including biomedical, health systems research, social science and behavioural research, and issues related to rights and ethics. Results and updates on innovative SRH programmes will also be presented.
Keynote speakers will present on priority issues in each session. Experts from South Africa and the African region, and participants from international agencies, institutions and organisations have been invited. There will also be a wide selection of posters displayed with other exhibitions.
