Humanitarian Case Studies Workshop: Mental health best practices from Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia

In fragile settings, where existing infrastructures are strained and there is a breakdown of social support, access to SRHR and mental health often is deprioritized. This session will take an interactive approach to equip participants with the tools and frameworks to improve access to SRHR and mental health care in such environments, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. Participants will learn from select case studies drawn from these areas, followed by a collaborative exercise to develop concrete action plans, recommendations and strategies to address the greatest challenges in their own communities. Organizers will compile the results of the session into a practical handbook of winning strategies for implementation and advocacy for mental health and SRHR in fragile settings.This event will be convened by Postpartum Support Network Africa, Ghent University, Medicins Sans Frontieres Belgium and the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights, Philippines.
