This summer school will provide a comprehensive overview about women’s reproductive and maternal health around the world. Topics discussed in this course represent critical health challenges and strategies to improve reproductive and maternal health outcomes.
How can we reduce maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality? What is the role of reproductive health services such as contraceptives, safe abortion and infertility treatment? How do societal factors affect women’s health outcomes, including social determinants, gender dynamics and human rights? What is the impact of cervical cancers on the health of women of reproductive age around the world? What interventions work, and how do national and international policies impact outcomes? How do the Sustainable Development Goals relate to maternal and reproductive health issues?'
These questions and many more will be discussed during the summer school with an international and interdisciplinary group of participants and faculty.
This course is organized by the UMC Utrecht / Wilhemina Children's Hospital in collaboration with the Dutch Working Party for Safe Motherhood and International Reproductive Health.
