Field of study Health care, social services and care services
Course summary This course discusses developments in reproductive and sexual health; impact of the AIDS/STI pandemic; evidence for best practice and the most effective strategies to address safe motherhood.
Course description Reproductive health services are no longer limited to population control and safe motherhood. The women's movement has drawn attention to the implications of human rights for women's health, which goes beyond their reproductive capacity and includes a gendered approach to issues such as HIV/AIDS and sexually-transmitted infections (STIs). The HIV/AIDS epidemic has a dramatic impact on the social and economic situation of individuals communities and societies. The style of interventions that health managers and professionals need to provide has therefore also substantially changed. The module builds on core aspects of SRHR, highlighting: improving antenatal, perinatal, postpartum and newborn care; providing family planning, including infertility services; eliminating unsafe abortion; combating sexually transmitted infections, reproductive and urinary tract infections, and promoting sexual health for all segments of the population. Different approaches for countries with high and low HIV/AIDS prevalence will be discussed.
