Call for papers: The 8th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights

The 8th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (APCRSHR) will examine the responses to the 2014 conference challenges posed to governments, civil society, young people, scholars and researchers, media professionals, development partners and the United Nations System. It will then focus on generating new paradigms and strategies for action across and within countries in the region.

The Organizing Committee warmly invites submissions of papers and posters. The topics may include the latest, state-of-the-art research, policy and programme evidence, service delivery systems, advocacy and communication efforts on the different elements of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) especially with respect to the most vulnerable populations with an emphasis on equity, inclusiveness and rights.

The selection of oral presentations and posters for presentation will be based on the quality of submissions and their relevance to the conference tracks ( Track 1: Laws and Policies, Track 2: Governance and Accountability, Track 3: Financing, Track 4: SRH integrating in Health Services, and Track 5: Others).

The review of submissions will be guided by the objectives and tracks of the conference, but the scientific committee will give full consideration to abstracts related to other themes relevant to SRHR, and may create additional sessions or tracks to accommodate these.

Submission deadline is 30 September 2015
