Text Book of Reproductive and Child Health Published

Text Book of Reproductive and Child Health with Focus on Ethiopia and other Developing Countries was launched on the occasion of the International Family conference convened in the African Union on 13, 2013, in the presence of authors, reviewers, delegates representing School of Public Health Addis Ababa University, Gates Institute, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University and the Ethiopian Public Health Association and other invited guests.

The preparation of the book was primarily motivated by the lack of a comprehensive reference material for the training of graduate public health students in reproductive health /maternal and child health (RH/MCH) in Ethiopia.RH

 The book is expected to be widely used for training of different types of undergraduate and graduate students taking RH/MCH courses. According to the editors of the book, such a comprehensive reference book would be of vital importance for professionals working in reproductive and child health and related fields.

The book contains 18 chapters co-authored by 45 highly experienced trainers and experts in the field. The preparation and publication of the book was financially supported by funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
