5 - 7 pm, April 16 2009

Based on our near-decade long training experience, TARSHI developed the ‘Basics and Beyond: Integrating Sexuality, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights’, a Training Manual which provides tools and methods to demonstrate and strengthen the connections between sexuality, sexual health, reproductive health and human rights. 20 participants from 9 countries attended the workshop.

To introduce the manual to trainers and provide suggestions for how to get maximum benefit from this one of a kind resource, TARSHI facilitated a 2 hour workshop at the IASSCS Conference in Hanoi, Vietnam on April 16, 2009. Trainers and educators who work on sexuality, sexual and reproductive health, and HIV and AIDS related issues were invited to participate in this workshop. The two hour workshop was designed to be interactive using exercises from the manual. Experiences of using the manual and the feedback received from other trainers who have used it were also shared.
