Post Graduate Diploma in Sexual and Reproductive Health

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH.

Start Date : 5th June 2020.

Background

This post graduate diploma offers students, professionals and health care workers with skills and knowledge in sexual and reproductive health.

Sexuality encompasses diverse behaviours and meanings that are shaped by individual, social, cultural, and historical factors. From the local to the global, a significant number of public health challenges involve sexual and reproductive health: HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, unintended pregnancies, access to family planning services, sex education, maternal mortality, sexual violence, and discrimination against/stigmatization of sexually non-conforming individuals. Promoting sexual and reproductive rights and agency, as well as respect for the dignity, equality, and rights of all persons, are also public health issues.

This course in Sexual and Reproductive Health approaches sexual and reproductive health as states of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being. The curriculum explores and challenges the social inequalities that have had profound effects on sexuality and health. Students can specialise as researchers or practitioners, and emerge prepared to work in agencies and organisations involved in programmatic or advocacy work, policy or evaluation research, or in direct service delivery.
