 Department of Reproductive health and population

The Department of Reproductive Health and Population is engaged in sexual reproductive health research that address issues that are relevant to low-income country settings. The Department also contributes to the training of health experts who will lead and manage reproductive health services, projects, and programs. The Reproductive Health and Population Studies course offered by the Department mainly covers concepts, theories, practices and measurement of health and disease in women, men, children, adolescents, and the elderly. In addition, the course addresses key concepts and measurements of the three demographic processes: fertility, mortality and migration. The Department also supports research conducted by Master of Public Health students. More than eight public health professionals are involved in the department.
