This free online course by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine presents the latest data, priorities and debates about the health of adolescents, mothers, newborns and children in an accessible way.
Explore the lifecycle from birth to adulthood
The course will run over six weeks, exploring the lifecycle from birth to adulthood, to look at adolescent, reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health.
Through the use of case studies, multimedia content and discussions with other learners from around the globe, we will consider the latest evidence about how to improve the health of women, children and adolescents in the context of different country settings.
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. You will get multiple perspectives on maternal and child health from experts working around the world in a range of disciplines, including epidemiology, demography, anthropology, medicine and public health.
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.
