Dr. Aysha Malo, a Consultant Gynecologist from SNM Hospital, served as the resource person for the event. She covered a range of topics, including the basic anatomy of both male and female reproductive systems, menstrual health and hygiene, pregnancy, cervical cancer, vaccines, and sexually transmitted diseases.
