A workshop on research protocol development has been organized at the World Health OrganiZation headquarters in Geneva from 16 to 20 September 2013 (Training Course in Sexual and Reproductive Health Research - Geneva Workshop 2013).

Of all participants of the 2012 edition of online training course, 13 from 11 countries were invited to attend this workshop. The objectives of this intensive training course were to sharpen participants' skills in research protocol development and improve their research skills.

The participants of the workshop were selected on the basis of their online course performance, completion and quality of the assignments and the quality of their review or paper. The strict selection ensured that those attending the workshop in Geneva were the most motivated participants of the online training course. The Geneva workshop provided participants with additional opportunities to interact with each other and share their experiences while improving their professional skills.

Moreover emerging issues on sexual and reproductive health, such as sexual and reproductive rights were also taught during this workshop by experts from WHO and GFMER. This workshop enhances the future collaborative research network within participants, WHO experts, and GFMER research members.
