Share-Net International, the Knowledge Platform for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to ensure that knowledge relevant for achieving improved SRHR is identified, shared, generated and used to achieve international development goals.
Alongside a research programme, coordinated through NWO/WOTRO in three focus countries (Bangladesh, Burundi and Jordan), a smaller allocation of funds has been made available through the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This has partly been used to establish a small grants facility providing funding for knowledge generation, identification, dissemination and translation for use in policy and practice, by member organisations of Share-Net International.
Activities proposed by members must contribute to achieve the knowledge related aims of Share-Net International, as specified in the Programme Document Knowledge Platform on SRHR:
“The Knowledge Platform will aim to ensure that knowledge relevant for achieving improved SRHR is identified, shared, generated and used to achieve international development goals. The Knowledge Platform aims to understand and facilitate the complex processes by which evidence informs policy and practice, both in the Netherlands and in partner countries, and to facilitate learning and collaborative exchange among those participating.”
