REPRODUCTIVE AND POPULATION HEALTH
The mission of the Division of Reproductive and Population Health is to improve quality of life by advancing reproductive and population health research and promoting community-engaged strategies. Faculty and researchers in this division study a broad range of topics within reproductive and population health, including maternal and child health, women’s health throughout the life course, family planning, health disparities and reproductive health equity. We train future researchers through the Health Disparities Research Scholars (T32) Postdoctoral Training Program and graduate programs in the Department of Population Health Sciences.
Members of this division provide leadership to a number of initiatives that engage communities, partner with diverse stakeholders and translate research into practice through dissemination and implementation. These initiatives include topics related to infant and maternal mortality, family planning, immunizations, prematurity prevention and global health.
Faculty in the division collaborate with investigators across the UW-Madison campus and many are affiliated with the Department of Population Health Sciences, Institute for Research on Poverty, Center for Demography and Ecology, and La Follette School of Public Affairs.
