Coursera: Global Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR)

 with  Anette Agardh and Karen Odberg Pettersson
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) are issues of global concern. Sexuality and reproduction are core aspects of human existence, and shape the lives of people in all parts of the world. As conditions change, for example through globalization and socio-economic development, new challenges and opportunities emerge.

In this course, we will introduce you to some of the main themes in SRHR today – Global Policies in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Youth Sexual Health, Maternal and Reproductive Health, Contraception and Fertility, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS, Violence and Coercion in Sexual and Reproductive Contexts, Human Rights and Sexual Identity. We will examine both underlying issues and questions that are relevant throughout the world, as well as challenges that occur in specific settings.
You will meet our international team of faculty members and experts, who will highlight the dynamics and challenges inherent in these themes by examining them within the context of current global policy issues, such as sustainability, gender equality, social justice, democracy/participation, and the human rights perspective. You will also get a unique opportunity to explore and discuss the course themes with fellow participants from around the world.

Selected lectures and seminars will be given by our international team of faculty members, who have worked with and lectured on SRHR issues within a broad range of contexts. The course is led by Associate Professors Anette Agardh and Jerker Liljestrand from the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University, Sweden.


The course will start with an introductory session that presents an overview of the main themes and provides some definitions concerning  the terminology used in the course. The subsequent weekly topics will cover Global Policies in the field of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights,Youth Sexuality and Health, Sexual Identity, Violence, Coercion and Human Rights in the context of Sexual and Reproductive Health, Maternal Health, Contraception, and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS.
