Deadline: 15 April 2019

The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is seeking applications for its International Training Programme “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights” which is designed for individuals holding positions in organizations in the area of SRHR and who are qualified to participate in reform processes at various levels.

The programme offers participants the training necessary to help their organizations define and achieve both short- and long-term goals. Participants will discuss the latest developments in their field with colleagues and experts, develop a network of colleagues from other countries and acquire enhanced knowledge and practical skills in working methods in the SRHR area. Participation in the programme assumes applicant’s organization wishes to carry out changes and invest its resources in the process.

    • Increasing their access to adequate sexual and reproductive health care
    • Promoting sexual education
    • Increasing the awareness and demand for SRHR services
  • The programme aims to initiate an organizational change where the participants will become “agents of change” by using new knowledge and tools acquired through the programme, thus contributing to the long-term objectives described above.
  • The immediate goals of participants will be to:
    • Develop and implement a change project in the field of SRHR within their organization
    • Report on the change project’s progress and results
    • Develop an action plan for continued work on the project within the organization

Programme Structure

  • Phase 1– Preparatory period (2 months)
  • Phase 2 – Scheduled programme in Sweden (4 weeks)
  • Phase 3 – Interim period (6 months)
  • Phase 4 – Regional follow-up (1 week)
  • Phase 5 – Continuation of the change projects (6 months)

Benefits

  • Increased knowledge and understanding of SRHR, its main components and related concepts
  • Increased knowledge and understanding of experience, methods and tools for initiating and supporting a process of organizational change
  • Expanded international and national networks in the field of SRHR

Target Group

  • The programme encourages applicants to apply as ‘country teams’. Preference will be given to country teams consisting of 4 to 6 participants who represent a range of professions listed below.
  • The target groups for the training programme are persons working within the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights area at the following levels:
  • Local level
    • Midwives, nurse/midwives and obstetricians working in a clinical setting with the possibility of influencing decision making in their respective settings.
  • Intermediate level
    • Professionals responsible for educational/training activities within the SRHR area at district or provincial level.
  • Central level
    • SRHR professionals at teaching institutions at national level, and policy makers at national level (Ministry of Health or Ministry of Education). In addition to the above, the programme will be open to staff from national NGOs and from the private sector working in the field of SRHR.

Prerequisites

  • At least five years of working experience in a field related to SRHR
  • A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • Computer literacy, including word processing skills and regular access to e-mail and the Internet. Further knowledge in ICT is preferrable.

Teams should preferably be balanced in gender and age composition.
