This subject takes as a starting point a consideration of what constitutes sexual and reproductive health over the life course. It provides an overview of key sexual and reproductive health issues in a variety of geographic locations and considers the factors that enable or inhibit women and men’s reproductive and sexual health. The student will gain an understanding of the wider issues of sexual and reproductive health in our society and will understand the sexual and reproductive health needs of specific groups within the community (eg sexual health of adolescents). The subject will be offered via a standard classroom lecture format and will also be offered by distance education for those students unable to attend classes.
