Reproductive Health Awareness: A Wellness, Self-Care Approach is a resource manual designed for training providers to develop reproductive health classes and training programs. The ultimate goals of such training programs are to increase knowledge, foster supportive attitudes, and develop skills that are important for good reproductive health for people of all ages. The manual focuses on reproductive health awareness, which includes an awareness of:
- The human body and the many opportunities for self-care;
- Gender issues that affect reproductive health and efforts to address gender inequities;
- A person’s own sexuality, as well as the sexuality of others; and
- The power of interpersonal communication for improved reproductive health
These points reflect the four key components of the Reproductive Health Awareness approach.
