Theme: Sexual & Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR)
Chair: Prof. Dr. Jelle Stekelenburg
Timekeeper: Lisanne Denneman

Linking research, policy and practice
This session was co-organised by the Share-Net Netherlands working group “Linking Research, Policy and Practice”1. Its aim was to increase the practical relevance of research outputs and to create and encourage knowledge sharing in order to improve evidence-informed policy and practice.

Our objective for this session was to share relevant insights and evidence and to stimulate discussion about the implications of these insights. Presenters shared recommendations for practice and/or policy, after which presenters and session participants were invited to reflect on strategies to bring these recommendations into practice.
