The focus of the course includes global concerns about determinants of maternal and
child health, alongside exploration of the impact of government policies on the provision
of care. In addition, it enables practitioners to enhance their critical and analytical skills

Key aspects of study include:

• Determinants of maternal and child health (national and international perspectives).

depth, a specific area of maternal and child health related provision/care through the
masters level dissertation.

Essays, reflective essays, presentations, research dissertation (MSc only).
