This subject provides students with an overview of reproductive health in an international context and within a public health framework. Topics will include: introduction to relevant health indicators and progress towards related Millennium Development Goals, global initiatives in reproductive health, family planning, safe abortion, antenatal and postnatal care, commodity security, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis, basic and comprehensive emergency obstetric and neonatal care, obstetric fistula, sexually transmitted infections, cervical screening and human papilloma virus vaccination, female genital mutilation, child marriage, adolescent reproductive health, gender based violence and reproductive health in emergency settings. Current international guidelines and policies, research and case studies will be presented. This subject is suitable for students wishing to gain a public health perspective of reproductive health in an international context, with the opportunity to focus on a specific issue of interest. While this course is suitable for both clinical and non-clinical participants, additional optional clinically focussed readings/resources will be provided but will not be examinable. Student feedback has contributed to the revision of this subject for 2013 with a greater emphasis on public health issues and less on direct clinical care.
