Over the past weeks there have been significant moves forward in terms of establishing Share-Net in Bangladesh and Burundi. Local consultants were appointed who undertook an agenda setting and mapping exercise in each country. Their findings were documented in country reports. In June the Coordinator of Share-Net International, Colin Dixon, was able to visit both countries to meet with potential partners and hosts for the local knowledge node. During well attended local stakeholder meetings the country reports were discussed and priority SRHR themes identified. These themes will form the basis for activity over the next four years and set the research agenda for the calls being managed through NWO/ WOTRO. In the meantime the final negotiations are underway to agree who the local knowledge nodes and hosts of Share-Net will be. These will be announced when finalised.
