Why study this program?
‘Sexual and reproductive health’ as a sub-set of Health in general is a ‘state of holistic physical, psychological and social well being in all constituents related to the reproductive functions and not simply the absence of reproductive disease or infirmity. It signifies that people are able to have a safe and healthy sexual life, the capability to procreate, and the ethical privilege to decide on related personal matters.
It is highly pertinent that to attain reproductive wellness and better levels of sexual and reproductive indices, evidence-based information should be made available to the masses and more so to the healthcare workers who are the drivers of upliftment in sexual and reproductive standards. It includes a scientific approach to public health awareness and social empowerment related to contraceptive standards, adolescent health, sexually transmitted infections, infertility issues, safe childbearing, male sexual health, approach towards dispelling myths and superstitions, etc.
