The day will include a series of short keynote addresses, led by Prof. Kelsey Hegarty, (Australian representative on WHO guidelines on health professional response to sexual and family violence) followed by a moderated panel and audience discussion. The afternoon will be workshop based, focussing on policy perspectives and frameworks for education and response to violence against women.
