About the SHRH research programme
SRHR is one of the priority policy areas of Dutch development cooperation. To strengthen the knowledge base of this policy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has installed the Knowledge Platform for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Share-net International. This platform plays a central role in identifying and articulating knowledge demands, formulating research questions and promoting knowledge exchange.
The SRHR research programme implements the research component of the Knowledge Platform. NWO-WOTRO develops and manages the calls for research proposals and cooperates with Share-Net International on knowledge sharing activities related to the research programme and the projects funded. Research proposals will be assessed using independent peer review and an international advisory committee. Decisions on funding will be made by a programme committee with representatives of the funding partners.
NWO-WOTRO advocates and facilitates research funding for equitable development. Such research is needed to meet global challenges and to strengthen the contribution of science to global society. NWO-WOTRO is part of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
