In January 2021, the second Share-Net International Co-Creation Conference “Engaging in Knowledge Translation Together” took place. The conference was hosted by Share-Net Bangladesh and took place completely online on a dynamic virtual platform. During this conference, researchers, policymakers, NGOs, funding organisations, the media and practitioners from across the world engaged in dialogues and collaborated to co-create knowledge products on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) for Adolescents and Youth. These knowledge products will be used at the national, regional and global levels to influence policy and practice.
To develop and promote these knowledge products, small grants were made available for which participants from the Co-Creation Conference could apply to finalise their products to improve SRHR for Adolescents and Youth!
It is with pleasure that we present to you the selected grantees of these small grants and their innovative projects to improve policy and practice!

The focus countries for the 2021 small grantees include Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Kenya, Egypt, The Netherlands, Jordan, Bangladesh, and Indonesia.
