Dear SVRI members,

With the Forum just a few days away, we would like to draw your attention to events that will be taking place at the Forum. These events are great additions to an already fantastic conference programme! Please take a look at the programme at: http://www.svri.org/forum2013/programme.htm.

SVRI Forum 2013 events:

1.  Welcome and networking events

Cocktail function:
Our conference co-host Partners for Prevention will be opening the SVRI Forum on Monday evening, 14 October at 18:00 in the hotel Ballroom I and Foyer. P4P Coordinator Mr James Lang will take a few minutes to talk about the work P4P has been doing in Asia - Pacific, and the state of the field more generally in the region. This will be followed by a short presentation by Dr Emma Fulu to present key P4P products such as their regional report, research toolkit and a short video on the UN multi-country study on men. Come and join us for this opening welcome event!

Gala dinner:
The Gala dinner has always played a central role in the SVRI Forum as it provides a space for all delegates to network and share their work. This event will take place on Wednesday evening, 16 October at 19:00 in the hotel area Riverside I - VIII. This event will not include any speakers or presentations. We hope to see you there!
