Diploma

Diploma In Sexuality, Human Rights And Politics In Education And Health

Online Part time 10 months March 2018 Peru Lima

The aim of the Diploma in Sexuality, Human Rights and Public Policy is to train human resources to manage theoretical approaches and knowledge of the current debate on gender, sexuality and public policies in society (with emphasis on Sexual and reproductive health and rights), [+]

Presentación Over the last twenty years, academic spaces and the international and national political context have been the scene of a set of emerging approaches and approaches in the fields of public health, social sciences and human rights whose confluence has shaped a new conceptual, political and practice. Among these approaches, a new impetus emerged for two categories of analysis: gender and sexuality, raised as socially constructed categories, which represented a true conceptual revolution that has subsequently allowed its incorporation into the processes of human development and construction of citizenship. The revaluation of sexuality, as an enriching dimension of the human person, has allowed to work for its demedicalization and for the abandonment of the conceptions of normality based on universal biological perspectives. Broader conceptions of sexual health have been adopted, defined from a gender perspective and increasingly in terms of integrality, health and not disease, and experience that transcends the strictly reproductive. A later stage in this process was determined by the approach of sexual and reproductive rights as human rights, which incorporated a new vision to approaches on sexual and reproductive health. The field of gender, sexuality and sexual and reproductive health is an important programmatic line, not only at the global level, but also at the national and regional levels. There is a high priority assigned to public policies on sexuality and reproductive health within the public and private spheres in a country where the sexual and reproductive health needs of large population groups have still been...
