Teaching

Members of the Maternal Health Group teach on a number of cross cutting modules at LSHTM, including among others Basic Epidemiology, Extended Epidemiology, Foundations in Reproductive Health, and Current Issues in Safe Motherhood and Perinatal Health.

The module “Safe Motherhood and Perinatal Health” focuses on low and middle income countries and addresses the following questions from a public health perspective: what is the burden of mortality and morbidity for women and their young babies; what are the determinants and causes of this burden; what are the available evidence-based interventions and strategies: what are their relative effectiveness; what are current topical or unresolved issues in maternal and perinatal health. The module includes lectures on common ground material and problem-based activities on unresolved or topical programmatic issues. It is attended every year by 40 students including external students and take place from the end of February to the end of March.

In addition to teaching MSc students, academic staff supervise a number of doctoral students from many different countries.
