Course content

Our MSc will help you reflect on the health or both children and women from an international public health perspective. You will discuss issues that impact them from a physical, social and psychological point of view. The wider social and political issues affecting women and children will also be explored.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recognised that women and children in the UK and globally face inequalities which come from a lack of access to education, technology, healthcare, legal support, employment. In order to address these issues WHO has targeted women and children in three of its Millennium development goals: 1) to promote gender equality and empower women 2) to reduce child mortality 3) to improve maternal health. Our course will enable you to address all these issues and the optional modules will enable you to tailor your learning to your individual practice.
