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.
