A three-day, six-session curriculum designed as a companion piece to "Cairo, Beijing and Beyond: A Handbook on Advocacy for Women Leaders", this manual uses participatory methodologies and is based on CEDPA's experience in building the skills of non-governmental organization (NGO) leaders to advocate for change in the reproductive health arena. While the background information and role play scenarios deal directly with reproductive health issues, a trainer can adapt the sessions for other contexts.
