Dr. Faysal Kak’s research and policy interventions have covered a wide range of issues related to women’s reproductive and sexual health in Lebanon and the region. This includes rising and falling maternal mortality rates, and empowering youth by integrating sexuality and rights into community life in conservative societies. As Senior Lecturer of Health Behavior and Sexuality & Public Health, and Director of the Women Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) Program at AUB Medical Center, he explains the different threats to women’s wellbeing at home, school, work, and across society, and how training, laws, advocacy and shelters reduce some problems.
