About This Program
The Certificate Program in Gender and Health will provide concrete training in gender and health with particular focus on gender theories, gender analysis, gender-based violence research methods, gender and sexuality, gender and women’s health, gender and men’s health, and intersectionality. Gender as applied to public health is a burgeoning field, and many NGOs and multi-lateral organizations have specific gender specialist positions; this Certificate Program is designed to give students the knowledge and skills to work in this area.
Upon completion of the certificate program, students will be able to:
- Explain the role of gender in shaping health inequities and recognize how gender health inequities affect health research and interventions.
- Apply gender analysis and gender concepts to leading related health topics related to women’s, men’s and people with other gender identities’ health, including sexual/reproductive health and gender-based violence.
- Incorporate gender analysis into health research and interventions.
This certificate program is only open to individuals who are currently matriculated in a degree program in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health or other schools at the Johns Hopkins University.
