TOP REVIEWS FROM CONFRONTING GENDER BASED VIOLENCE: GLOBAL LESSONS FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS
I enjoyed the course very much. Most informative. Found best practice sharing helpful. Only thing I did not enjoy was getting locked out of my tests & assignments. Thank you very much.
Insightful and comprehensive - even for people with prior understanding of GBV, this course is a fantastic way of refreshing the memory and keeping up with new findings.
Excellent course, speaks not only to health professional looking to investigate introductory concepts related to GBV and VAW, but for policy professionals as well
Very interesting course. I am not a healt worker, but I work in development aid on youth issues and it was very useful as inspiration for project designing.
