PHM529 Sexual and Reproductive Health

This unit introduces the key public health concepts and principles in the field of sexuality and reproduction. Public health is concerned with sexual and reproductive health at a population level rather than the individual, and involves maintaining health through social actions such as legislation, policy, advocacy, health promotion, health education, screening/ surveillance and modifying environments. Students will learn how to approach sexual and reproductive health from a public health, human rights and cultural perspective, analyse current data and gain tools for practical service programming for good sexual and reproductive health outcomes.
