Detailed information about this course:
The health of women of child bearing age and of children have an important impetus on public health. The aim of the course is to provide an insight into child health from conception onwards.
Determinants of fecundity, pregnancy and pregnancy outcome are discussed as a prerequisite for child health. Perinatal and infant mortality in an international perspective, growth and development are discussed as important health indicators. Preventive interventions such as vaccinations, screening programmes and health promotion are discussed. Special attention is given to the health of groups at risk for health problems such as children of low socio-economic classes and children of ethnic minorities. Psychosocial health problems are said to be on the increase. Facts and figures in an international perspective will be presented. In adolescence, life style habits are developed and appropriate health promotion is important. Examples of health promotion programmes are discussed. The programme consists of presentations, exercises and group discussions.
