Geneva Workshop 2014 - Lynn Gertiser

The Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research (GFMER) held their annual intensive training course on sexual and reproductive health at the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland last week, September 15-19. The emphasis of the workshop was on research methodology and attendees were chosen based on their exceptional research proposals composed during their enrollment in the 2013 Sexual Reproductive Health Rights online course offered by GFMER.

Participants were comprised of health professionals from around the world, including Latin America, Africa, Asia, and North America and presented research proposals spanning the field of reproductive health. The workshop provided the participants an opportunity to augment their research knowledge through presentations by WHO staff and GFMER team members. Moreover, the participants had the chance to build friendships and networks with colleagues from around the world who share their same passion for reproductive health and research.
