AMRC organised a workshop in June 2016 bringing together women workers' educators to talk about the challenges women workers face at the workplace addressing their health concerns, including reproductive health and issues such as sexual harassment.

In a regional meeting of women labour rights advocates in October 2015, women activists noted that the health issues of women workers were not often looked at in a gender-sensitive manner, leading to many issues being ignored and unaddressed. Many organisations also lack information on reproductive health and hazards, ergonomics and the effects of stress on the health of women in particular. This workshop brought together women workers’ educators to analyse and strategise how better to address OSH for women workers.
