This free online course presents the latest data, priorities and debates about the health of adolescents, mothers, newborns and children in an accessible way, so that everyone has the opportunity to engage with the issues.
The course will run over six weeks, exploring the lifecycle from birth to adulthood, to look at adolescent, reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health. Each week will focus on a different area, inviting you to discuss the most recent data, and the current policy, programme and research debates that inform action to improve health outcomes.
At the end of the course we will reflect on the importance of lifecycle thinking for women, children and adolescents in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
The Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive, and Child Health (MARCH) is the central hub for women’s and children’s health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and comprises more than 150 academics working around the world in 100 countries, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. In this course, you will hear from MARCH Centre experts in a range of disciplines, including epidemiology, demography, anthropology, medicine and public health.
