Reproductive Health (NOD42I1)

The primary objective of the subject is to gain knowledge related to the phenomenon of reproductive health / family planning. To that end, the lectures and exercises address various relevant elements, from conceptual definitions, rights and responsibilities, to the deterministic foundation and the identification of key problems, and to the actions that are undertaken or need to be undertaken to improve reproductive health / family planning indicators. Despite the necessity of a multi-disciplinary approach, the closest attention is devoted to the demographic and health aspect of examining the reproductive health / family planning phenomenon.

Gained knowledge about the reproductive health problems of the Serbian population and understanding of the demographic and medical factors of the fertility framework in Serbia.
