At the time of writing, the world is in the midst of a global pandemic. Whilst we are all adapting to a rapidly evolving situation, we want to do our part to ensure our communities are still able to remain connected and learn from one another. Our webinar series, The Spotlight, aims to bring together voices from across the SRHR sector to shine a light on the key topics we’re facing. Alongside partners, we’ll be hosting a series of discussions on how we can come together to overcome obstacles and continue to serve communities across the globe.
The Spotlight Series launched on the 8th April with a discussion on delivering safe abortion in the time of Covid-19 and a second webinar on Securing supplies in insecure times.
