Program description

Women and men have multiple sexual and reproductive health needs in various social, cultural and political contexts.

International population policy has recently shifted to the enhancement of reproductive and sexual health. The goal is to enable women and men to have satisfying and safe sex lives. Women receive assistance in regulating their own fertility safely and effectively by allowing them to become pregnant when they wish to, to terminate unwanted pregnancies, and to carry desired pregnancies to term. It also has the goal of protecting men and women from disease, disability, or death associated with sexual practices, reproduction and fertility, and of enabling people to raise healthy children. This module offers insight in the social, cultural and gender dimensions of reproductive and sexual health and health care, and in the way in which women's decision making power and access to resources affect reproductive and sexual health.
