Meeting on training in reproductive health for CCEE / NIS. Report on a WHO meeting, Copenhagen, 26-28 June 1995.
Copenhagen, WHO, Regional Office for Europe, 1996. , 15 p. (EUR/ICP/FMLY 94 03/MT04; EUR/HFA Target 16)Responding to the needs for training in reproductive health, European public health training programmes have been increasingly offering training to participants from countries of central and eastern Europe/newly independent states of the former Soviet Union (CCEE/NIS). The WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a meeting to identify ways to better coordinate and cooperate in efforts made by the various schools, institutions and organizations with courses in reproductive health. After an overview of the current situation in reproductive health in CCEE/NIS (including the epidemiology of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS) and a summary of the relevant research activities in the Region, participants presented their training programmes and discussed training objectives for the future. Two working groups were formed to address clinical/research and management/behavioural training needs, respectively. Finally, the participants drew conclusions and made recommendations on ways to better coordinate training activities and facilitate twinning arrangements between relevant organizations, calling for coordination by WHO and the establishment of a clearing-house based in the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Governments, donors and individuals were called upon to support and advocate reproductive health programmes and services. (author's)
POPULATION, FAMILY PLANNING, AND PROSPEROUS FAMILY NEWSLETTER. 1996 Mar; (2):8.The Office of the Minister for Population Affairs in mid-1996 planned to send nine family planning consultants to several countries in Asia and Africa to help make a success of the family planning programs in these countries. Population Affairs Minister, concurrently Chairman of the National Family Planning Coordinating Board (BKKBN), Haryono Suyono, when opening a training program for the family planning consultants in Jakarta, said that the training program was organized under a cooperation between Indonesia, the UN Family Planning Agency, and the US Government. The training was also a realization of South-South cooperation in family planning and population affairs agreed upon at the World Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994. Nine of the participants were from Minister Suyono's office and the Association of Indonesian Family Planning. The training will last four months and the participants will be thoroughly trained in computer application, English, and how a consultant should work. The instructors came from Johns Hopkins University in the US, BKKBN consultants, the International Population and Family Planning Training Centre, and English teachers from the US. The BKKBN has in the last five years trained a total of 29 family planning consultants for assignment in 10 Asian and African countries, including Ethiopia, Tanzania, Bangladesh, Laos, Fiji, and Vietnam. In the meantime, the International Family Planning and Population Training Centre in Jakarta has since 1987 trained 2500 family planning officials from 87 countries in Asia and Africa.
