Confronting Gender-based Violence: Global Lessons with Case Studies from India is a free massive open online course, or MOOC, that will run from Sept. 7 through Oct. 17. Registration is now open. The MOOC is offered through Coursera; registration and more information are available here.
The course is designed for social workers, physicians, nurses, midwives, community health workers, counselors, and other global health workers to help them assess, treat, and care for patients who are survivors of gender-based violence. The material is also relevant for public health practitioners, policymakers, and researchers who want to better address GBV in their patient and client populations and to understand more about GBV and its health impact.
