      The 7th Leadership Course on Gender, Sexuality and Health in Southeast Asia and China: A Course for SEA Region


      The 7th Leadership Course on Gender, Sexuality and Health in Southeast Asia and China was brought to an end with desirable result since Saturday 13th September 2008. This year training course brought together 23 key participants and 1 observer who are researchers, program managers, lecturers and advocates in the field of gender, sexuality, and health from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

      This 19-day leadership course aims to provide the participants with context-specific and gender-sensitive knowledge on sexuality and health in Southeast Asia and China. Special attention will be devoted to exploring how gender and sexuality conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches can be applied to enhance health outcomes in the region. The three main objectives of the course are:
       
      - To explore the linkages between gender, sexuality, and health within the socio-cultural, economic, political, and historical contexts of Southeast Asia and China.
       
      - To develop critical thinking and contextualized understanding of gender and sexuality as they affect health outcomes in the region.
       
      - To build capacity to apply these perspectives to improve health policies and programs.
       
      This regional training course is organized annually, with the host institution rotating among core members of the Southeast Asian Consortium on Gender, Sexuality, and Health. This year course was organized in collaboration with the Postgraduate Studies and Research Department, University of Health Sciences, Lao PDR during 25 August – 13 September 2008 at the Lao Plaza Hotel, Vientiane, Lao PDR

      Selected topics include:
      * Socio-cultural context of Southeast Asia and China;
      * Sexual health in Southeast Asia and China;
      * Sexual meanings and gender identities;
      * State, nation building and sexuality
      * Religion and sexuality;
      * Migration and sexuality;
      * Beyond sex work;
      * Social conflict and sexuality
      * Public health and the body;
      * Protected, safe sex vs. unprotected, unsafe sex;
      * Unwanted, coercive vs. wanted, consensual sex;
      * Context-specific and gender-sensitive research, advocacy and program intervention
        
      The course is conducted in English, and is participatory in nature, and uses the knowledge, skills and expertise of participants as a major resource. The faculty staff for the 7th Leadership Course was composed of the Consortium members coming from throughout the region, with a diversity of health and social science backgrounds, former participant, and available leading Lao experts. Different teaching methods were used, including lectures, small group discussions, case studies, videos, media analysis and field trips. We visited number of Lao Government offices and non-government offices such as Vientiane Youth Center, Lao Youth Action for HIV/AIDS Program, AIDS Care & Treatment Unit of Sethathirath Hospital, MSM Drop in Center in Vientiane and Inter-District Hospital and Na-Mouang Health Center in Vang Vieng. The fieldworks not only aimed to learn the implementation of sexual and reproductive health programs,  health system and health sector reform of
      Lao PDR, but also to explore gender and sexuality of Lao people daily lives and their socio-cultural context in Vientiane capital and touristy city in Vang Vieng.
           
      The most fruitful outcomes of this course were the contribution and active participation from the participants through activities conducted during the course, namely reading assignment and working group. Most participants expressed that the course fulfilled and met their expectation. One participant from Philippines even stated that this training course was the best course she has ever attended. We ended up with the participants’ presentation of project proposals which were regarded as one of the official outputs of their successful completion of the 19-day Leadership Course.
          
      Special thanks devoted to sponsorship from donors and the Consortium partners who provided financial support, namely the Ford Foundation; Asia Foundation, Indonesia; the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, WHO Country Office for Thailand; Burnet Institute, Myanmar; Ipas, Vietnam; Lao National Commission for the Advancement of Women (Lao NCAW); Khmer HIV/AIDS NGO Alliance (KHANA) and Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre for Women (ARROW).
          
      Even though the Consortium has conducted the course for 7 times, the course is required improvement in order to achieve its objectives, meet the expectation of participants and certainly reach the goal set up to enhance better health outcomes of our region. Definitely, this would be made possible by all of us.
