Welcome to a special Women’s World Season highlighting Gender Based Violence prevention and response in Papua New Guinea. In this special edition we look closely at Sexual and Reproductive Health.
We visit the Kaugere Clinic in Port Moresby, where Dr Patrick Koliwan discusses family planning, engaging men in Family planning, safe pregnancies and Sexual Transmitted diseases.
We also speak to Sister Loretta about the importance of having an STI Check-up.
In the last segment, Director of Safe Motherhood Alliance PNG, Catherine Fokes tells us about how the organisation works in terms of facilitation, coordination, promotion and advocacy on issues around maternal health, working from a community level to the national level.
More interrelated themes of Gender Based Violence are covered in this season: the health sector response, legal and policy challenges, counselling and care for survivors, language and cultural beliefs and what men and women can do as champions for change.
