International Expert Advisory Group

Stakeholder engagement is core to the INVOLVE_FP research programme, with meetings held periodically to take feedback on the ongoing research from decision makers, programmers, and experts in low- and middle- income countries.

We hope that members of the advisory group will benefit from opportunities for networking with an international group of experts and sharing of information and resources from the research team.

If you are interested in learning more and offering your feedback on the work of INVOLVE_FP please contact: Dr Áine Aventin or Dr Martin Robinson.
