Reproductive and Sexual Health

MPC research on reproductive and sexual health spans the life course, addressing health from preconception through childhood and adolescence, pregnancy and post-delivery experiences, and parenthood. Three features of MPC’s reproductive and sexual health research community highlight our capacity for cutting-edge contributions: 1) disciplinary diversity; 2) rich and varied data resources; and 3) the combination of established and emerging scholars. MPC scholars of reproductive and sexual health span eight disciplines: epidemiology, applied economics, geography, health policy, history, pediatrics, public policy and sociology. Such disciplinary diversity is a fruitful incubator for innovative new scholarship, catalyzing novel partnerships and expanding research across fields. Convener: Elizabeth Boyle
