Description

In this module, the participants discuss and analyse a case on disrespect and abuse in obstetric care (vide infra). The analysis and discussion will encourage the participants to apply the conceptual frameworks of HPSR in a real world problem. They will also be encouraged to consider multiple dimensions of inequality to unpack the case.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how different building blocks of health systems interact in a real-world scenario
  2. Identify how gender and other dimensions of inequality may influence both the provision and experience of care.
