Organisation profile

We contribute to the improvement of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) through linking scientific research, advanced education, policy support and capacity-strengthening. We focus on the broader perspective of promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights through addressing one overarching research question: “How can we improve SRH focusing on disease prevention and health promotion  in a globalized world?”

We believe that people in all parts of the world should be able to make informed choices about their SRH respecting sexual and reproductive rights in enabling environments, with equal access, built on scientific evidence. Our work is focused around several critical intersections between four key populations and SRH topics.

We use quantitative, qualitative and mixed method inter-disciplinary approaches (e.g. epidemiology, sociology, anthropology, psychology, demography) that explain risk and vulnerability as evidence base for improving SRH outcomes.

We contribute actively to teaching at ITM and externally, including on the following:

  • Masters in Public Health
    • HIV & STI Response 3-week course
    • Sexual and Reproductive Health 3-week course
  • Short Course in Qualitative and Mixed Methods research in International Health
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Tropical Medicine and International Health
  • Tropical Medicine for Bachelors in Nursing and Midwifery (English and French)

The Sexual and Reproductive Health Group has been created by “merging” two research units (HIV and Sexual Health and Maternal and Reproductive Health).
