  • To challenge and prevent practitioner and community myths and misconceptions
  • To increase space for people from a diversity of professional, academic and consumer backgrounds to share knowledge, network and establish partnerships for change
  • To create opportunities to plan for future policy, programs and action in the area of reproductive and sexual health
