Mastering Reproductive Health Care

Boost social and economic progress through Sexual Reproductive Health Services

The Dutch government has chosen Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) as one of the priorities in its development cooperation policy. In support to the government’s efforts on promotion of SRHR, MSM and its partners jointly developed the Executive Program in Management of Sexual Reproductive Health Services.

The program aims at helping participants build management skills and competencies to deal with changes and challenges in Sexual Reproductive Health services.Providing effective, efficient and good quality Sexual Reproductive Healthcare on a sustainable basis will contribute to reducing maternal mortality rates, curbing the spread of HIV/AIDS and preventing unwanted pregnancies, especially among teenagers. This will benefit the individuals for sure, but more importantly, it will boost social and economic progress in the countries concerned.
