Reproductive Health and Rights Course

INTRODUCTION

This course allows participants to explore the complex issues relating to clinical, public health and psychosocial aspects of sexual health. Participants are encouraged to develop an awareness of sexually transmitted infections, sexual health and sexuality as an integral part of well-being and how this can be related to broader fields of health service delivery. Basic principles of aetiology, transmission, clinical presentation and management relating to sexually transmissible infections will also be addressed. Understanding sexual health and how to identify treat and prevent sexually transmissible infections, is critical to the enhancement of a broad orientation to health. The central purpose is to provide a sound theoretical basis that underpins this specialty and to develop awareness of its applicability to other areas of practice.

By the end of the training, participants get a foundational introduction to sexual health and rights as a concept and to sexual health promotion as a tool for prevention. Those who are new to sexual health should complete all courses within the Learning path of Sexual and Reproductive Health.
