ANSER is hosting its bi-annual online Doctoral School on October 10-21, 2022 on Global Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: Methods, Concepts and Implications for Policy and Practice 

Jointly organised by the Karolinska Institutet (Sweden), the University of Nairobi (Kenya) and ICRH/Ghent University (Belgium), this Doctoral School aims at understanding of how sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are shaped, and its effects on future generations. 

Content of the courses : 

As future researchers involved in global health, this course will provide you with practical and theoretical tools as well as background to review and carry out research in SRHR based courses such as ‘SDGs and other policy initiatives and their relation to SRHR globally’ or ‘Underlying causes of (in)equities in SRHR’.  

A research-focus is also made to promote the (auto-)reflexivity around research and help you to be confident and a good promoter of your work. Courses such as ‘Qualitative and quantitative research methods’ or ‘Critiquing the literature in SRHR’ will be provided to ensure a full range of technical and reflective skills in a global context. 

Learning outcomes : 

At the end of this Doctoral School, you can expect to be able to : 

  1. Understand the state of the art in SRHR, including global trends, progress, challenges and gaps in research 
  2. Examine SRHR Policies and understand their relation to SRHR outcomes, as well as translate research into policy 
  3. Explain how structural factors – including social, political, economic and ethical factors - influence SRHR
  4. Utilize, analyse and interpret qualitative and quantitative data and measurements in SRHR 
  5. Demonstrate skills in scientific writing, and reviewing and critiquing scientific papers
