CHP 518 Global Issues in Maternal and Child Health 3.0 Credits
This course covers maternal and child health (MCH) disparities using the life course perspective. Health disparities will be explored across geopolitical boundaries. Material will stem from three main pedagogical principles: 1) MCH issues outside the US are sometimes very similar to domestic issues; 2) MCH issues outside the US are sometimes drastically different than domestic issues; and 3) MCH is not only about women and children, but also about men, as well external factors beyond the individual and interpersonal levels of the social ecological model. Throughout the course, an emphasis will be placed on providing practice-based evidence of MCH disparities from around the world and evidence-based practice examples for prevention, intervention, and ultimately the reduction of global MCH health disparities.
