Sessions on “Recent Evolution and Global Research Agenda in the field of SRHR” by Dr. Moazzam Ali & “Relevance of Family Planning in SDG era – Benefits and Impact of Family Planning” by Dr. Syed Khurram Azmat

Dr. Moazzam Ali, Medical Officer at the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at WHO Headquarters took an interactive session on “Recent evolution and global research agenda in the field of SRHR” at Health Services Academy on 26th April, 2017 from 9:00 -11:30 am. An explicit summary was presented by him on three important components of SRHR as well as an overview on the voucher mechanism in health care financing. According to him, using system-based approaches we have been struggling through decreasing maternal mortality but have neglected patients’ satisfaction in this context. Concerning demand-side financing, three key areas which are barriers, supply and demand in the healthcare financing needs to be addressed globally. This was followed by presentation by Dr. Syed Khurram Azmat on “Landscaping on Supporting Family Planning within National Financing Schemes in Pakistan”. He stated that dynamics under the umbrella of family planning can be improved by building linkages between public and private sectors. He instilled that family planning should be included in the curriculum of medical education and training. Both sessions were well- attended by the faculty, PhD fellows and students of MSPH at HSA.
