ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) has been advocating for women rights including right to food and nutrition security and Sexual and Reproductive Health Right (SRHR). AAB has been engaged in promoting women agriculture entrepreneurs through different projects. At the grassroots level we are implementing several projects that address the critical SRHR and nutrition issues particularly of women entrepreneurs. “Making Market Work for Women” (MMWW) is such a project intended to strengthen food security through women’s improved access to nutrition and SRHR. The prime intervention related to SRHR and nutrition of this project is to remove social, economic and cultural barriers by making Government health facilities responsive towards SRHR and Nutrition demands etc. Experience gained so far with this project suggests that there is a strong need to create learning-sharing environment among SRHR practitioners/activists for deepening understanding as well as drawing policy attention on the issue. Considering this, ActionAid Bangladesh is going to organize “SRHR and Nutrition Collaboration Fair”.For deepening understanding on these issues, we believe that organizing an event where CSOs/ NGOs working on food security & nutrition, SRHR can come together and discover the area of convergences and identify the social, cultural, economic and structural barriers of SRHR & nutrition rights of women & girls and draw a pathway to remove these gaps.We have seen many CSOs/ NGOs are working at the grassroots for removing social, economic and structural barriers to SRHR and nutrition rights of women and girls. Common interventions of these organizations include raising awareness on SRHR and nutrition, making government health facilities responsive towards SRHR and nutritional demands, mobilizing market actors towards SRHR and nutrition demands and above all social transformation to protect and uphold the rights of women and girls. Overall purpose of this event is to strengthen the relationship of like-minded organizations including NGOs and private sectors and SRHR and nutrition professionals which will contribute to the wellbeing of women and girls related to SRHR and nutritional demand. Objectives: 1. Mapping products and services of various NGOs and private sectors related to SRH, food and nutrition security.2. Explore and showcase good practices related to SRHR and nutrition for mutual learning.3. To reduce gaps in above services to explore sustainability potentials through convergence approach.4. Assess and cross cutting dimensions of SRHR services provided by different NGOs and private sector.
