Background of the event:
Network for Ensuring Adolescent Reproductive Health, Rights and Services (NEARS) is a network of organizations and individuals working in the field of adolescent sexual and reproductive health rights and services. In Bangladesh, adolescents constitute 23 percent of the total population and they are vulnerable to social, economic, environmental, and health related threat. Most adolescents lack access to critical information and services to protect themselves from reproductive health problems that can have lifelong effects on their ability to have a normal life. In this context, the NEARS feel the need of a platform where adolescents can get adequate and proper information about reproductive health issues as well as feel free to let know their problems. A website can be such a solution for helping adolescents and developed thereby. In this connection, last year an orientation on a demo website of NEARS held where adolescents participated and shared their expressions for developing a website that will meet the contemporary knowledge on SRH for adolescents. The website had developed by incorporating their feedback and an orientation on this developed website took place in this year 2017.
