Doctor Training the Trainers
Thank you for your continuing support for our work with Dalit women in Nepal. The two Reproductive Health Workshops originally scheduled for December have now been scheduled for March to coordinate greater human resources for the project. The workshops, in conjunction with our partner organization in Nepal, ADWAN, will consist of a comprehensive introduction to reproductive and adolescent health and will focus on educating young women about their sexual and reproductive health.
The curriculum is divided into seven parts. The first two sections consist of lessons on reproductive and adolescent health while the next section focuses on educating young adults on reproductive and sexual health. The subsequent installment informs the audience of the dangers of early age marriage, and the next two sections are fully devoted to pregnancy. The workshop will conclude with an important discussion on family planning.
We expect 50 women from Manakamana/Bakrang and Fujel/Tanglichowk in Gorkha District to participate in the workshops and to share their knowledge to 400 women in their respective villages. Based on the tremendous success of the pilot workshop that was conducted in Taklung in September of 2012, we anticipate that these upcoming workshops have the potential to profoundly affect the health of hundreds of women.
We look forward to sharing more details with you as they become available!
