The Pleasure Agenda – a by-invitation event
Pleasure and desire are fundamental components of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) yet are often absent from the agenda.
Family Planning Victoria, in partnership with The Australia Forum on Sexuality, Education and Health, is seeking expressions of interest from thought leaders to join with us for this key event.
At the event we aim to explore how we can further embed pleasure and desire into SRH policy and practice by:
- Broadening the SRH discourse on pleasure and desire
- Identifying research, policy, practice and omissions
- Forming coalitions of interest to address identified omissions
- Developing an advocacy agenda.
This event is aimed at those working in the SRH sector in areas such as education, health promotion, research, information translation, clinical practice and Government.
If you are interested in taking part in this agenda setting event please complete the Expression of Interest form by May 19, 2017.
