Following the successful of the implementation of the Ford Foundation/IPPF Project: Her Initiate: Women In The New Millenium” carried out in the year of 2001-2002, this year Federation of Family Planning Associations, Malaysia with the funding by Ford Foundation/IPPF and MAC/MOH organised a workshop on Capacity Building Workshop for Healthy, Empowered and Responsible (HER) Educators on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Including HIV/AIDS, (HER Initiate). This “Further Dissemination Process and Follow-up on Empowerment of Young Women from Underserved Communities in Reproductive Rights and Reproductive Health” workshop was conducted on the 5-7 December 2003 in the Summit Hotel, USJ Subang Jaya.

The objectives for the workshop were:
  • To create awareness on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and rights including HIV/AIDS to the community catalysts.
  • To update community catalysts on the importance of integrating gender perspective into SRH and rights including HIV/AIDS.
  • To promote skills on how to promote adherence to healthy life practices regarding SRH including HIV/AIDS.
Through this project, 20 young women aged 18 and above who are involved in community work or have the potential to be community catalysts were trained. Several topics were presented and discussed eg. Roles of Community Catalysts in Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH), An Overview of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, and Women and HIV/AIDS.

The workshop was successfully conducted through the evaluation and feedback from the participants. Participants felt that they have learned more about SRH and Rights and HIV/AIDS which they had not learned adequately in school. They planned to organise the same workshop for their own community as this is a good workshop.
