Reproductive HealthLearn moreRegister Online
The fact of the matter is, healthcare in our society is dependent on multiple dimensions including science and research, sociocultural values, politics, economics, the media, the corporate world, and much more.
“Within the framework of WHO’s definition of health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, reproductive health addresses the reproductive processes, functions and system at all stages of life. Reproductive health, therefore, implies that people are able to have a responsible, satisfying and safe sex life and that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so.
Implicit in this are the right of men and women to be informed of and to have access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable methods of fertility regulation of their choice, and the right of access to appropriate health care services that will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.” – World Health Organization
Reproductive Health encompasses topics including:
Discussion of the latest scientific research efforts of countries for chronic disease management.
Perhaps the most important issue when discussing health care is accessibility. After all, if the solution is there but is not accessible to the majority of the population, it is not of much use.
Discussion of the influence of multinational pharmaceuticals companies and various health care providers, as well as the role of the media in health care issues.
This is an opportunity to learn from key professionals who are actively involved in various aspects of health care in Canadian and global society.
EdmontonWHO is proud to be an active participation event, where discussion among participants is not only encouraged but central to the event.
You have the opportunity to share your ideas on potential solutions to global health care problems with peers and professionals. Proposals will be published on our website after the event.
EdmontonWHO is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring students in all faculties interested in healthcare.
