That way the network expands the voices and participation of non-academics in research, by seeking feedback on SRHR evidence needs in society.
During the meeting ANSER was presented, as well as its impressive range of studies about the impact of COVID measures on SRHR. External stakeholders were given the opportunity to pitch the research gaps they experienced within their work. Based on their input, ANSER will set priorities for the coming year. In small groups the ANSER members and external stakeholders talked about these research gaps and possible research questions concerning these topics.
The online meeting was attended by 78 participants from 24 countries, representing 47 ANSER members from 18 member institutions and 31 external stakeholders from 23 organisations. The report of the meeting can be found here.
ANSER wants to emphasize that these stakeholder meetings are not the end, but rather the start of new collaborations.
