Course Objective and Content

Course Objectives: The purpose of this course is to examine reproductive health issues, programs, services, and policies in developed and developing countries. The course content will emphasize social, economic, environmental, behavioral, and political factors that affect family planning, reproductive health, fertility, and pregnancy outcome. The course will have three areas of focus: (1) interventions and programs to improve reproductive health; (2) the measurement and interpretation of reproductive indices (within nations and globally); and (3) policies that affect reproductive health (with an emphasis on global policies and funding).
Course Content: • Overview of global reproductive health: assessment, assurance, and advocacy
• Special populations (with a focus on stigma and its affect on reproductive health) and surveillance
• Environmental concerns and global reproductive health
• Sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, and cervical cancer: prevention, control, and treatment variations internationally
• Abortion (medical and surgical) and unintended pregnancy
• Safe motherhood and fetal origins of adult disease
• Adolescent reproductive and sexual health: indices and trends related to health promotion and outcomes internationally
• Presentation of seminars
