Family Planning NSW, Australia

Senior Project Coordinator, International Programs, Family Planning NSW, Australia
The focus of my career has been on promoting the rights of marginalised people especially those who live with disability. For the past 13 years I have designed and delivered sexual and reproductive health (SRH) education programs for Family Planning NSW, an Australian NGO. I am currently responsible for the pilot of a post basic SRH course for nurses in Papua New Guinea. I am also supporting a family health organisation in Fiji to develop a 3 year plan to build their capacity to deliver a SRH education program.
I am interested in the effectiveness of human rights based education on the work practices of professionals. I would like to conduct research that considers the impact of education that raises awareness and provides strategies for action to support the sexual rights of people with disabilty.
