Take an edX Course on “Menstruation in a Global Context”

The Gender, Adolescent Transitions, and Environment (GATE) Program at Columbia University led by Professor Marni Sommer has released an online edX course entitled “Menstruation in a Global Context: Addressing Policy and Practice.”

Details about the course can be found here.

The course is estimated to take 14 weeks to complete, based on 2-3 hours of work spent on it per week. It covers the following topics:

  1. Menstruation as a Public Health and Human Rights Issue
  2. Review of Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH) Evidence and Gaps
  3. MHH Programming for Adolescent Girls
  4. The MHH Experiences of Women in Low-Resource Settings
  5. MHH Policy and Advocacy
  6. MHH Response in Humanitarian Emergencies
  7. Inclusive MHH Programming and Policies

A limited version of the course is available on EdX’s “Audit Track” for no charge. According to the EdX pricing structure, a full version of the course – i.e., the “Verified Track” – costs $50 USD, which allows for unlimited access to the course, access to all course materials (including quizzes and tests), and can provide a certificate upon completion of the course.
