SRH issues have plagued the Pacific Islands for several years now and the AOFOG was determined to help in this area. The opportunity finally presented itself at the Scientific Meeting of the Pacific Societies of Reproductive Health which was also supported by the PNG Society, WHO and UNFPA. The AOFOG Session covered “Gender inequity including Gender Based Violence and its effect on Reproductive Health” and our speakers were Dr. John Tait, Dr. Shanti Raman, Dr. Mary Balupa and Dr. Lorna Rolls.
