Overview

Learn about how we can safeguard the health of women and young people

Each year, there are roughly 10 million mostly preventable newborn, child, adolescent, maternal, and foetal deaths. These demographics are some of the most vulnerable around the world and urgently need better health outcomes.

On this course you’ll learn from experts at the World Health Organisation and the MARCH Centre how to analyse the latest data and evidence pertaining to the human life cycle – from birth to adulthood.

You’ll understand how this ‘lifecycle thinking’ can help us take action over women’s health and children’s health in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

This course is designed for healthcare professionals, undergraduate students taking a healthcare or science-related degree, medical students and postgraduates wishing to complement their studies, and anyone else with an interest in the topic.

I 'm about to start the course for personal enrichment at the same time with "International Women's Health and Human Rights" MOOC from Coursera. Very interesting, the topics are discussed with in-depth and **in-breadth** insights
