Child Protection: Harvard FXB Online Course through HarvardX

Do you want to learn about child protection through a child-centered systems approach to prevention and response? Then our new online course may be for you.

The FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University (Harvard FXB) is delighted to announce the launch of a new free online course: “Child Protection: Children’s Rights in Theory and Practice” in cooperation with Harvard’s online initiative, HarvardX.

The course is currently open for enrollment, with content posted by January 16, 2019. Enrollment will continue after that date. The eleven-week, self-paced course invites learners with interest in deepening their knowledge about protecting child rights. Those seeking technical training in child protection or engaged in work with and for children are especially encouraged to enroll. A certificate is available after completion of course work for a small fee.

Professor Jacqueline Bhabha, Director of Research for Harvard FXB and Professor of the Practice of Health and Human Rights at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, leads the course, with assistance from several other experts. The course draws on case studies from over 15 countries and offers an opportunity for students to interact with a global community of learners. Together, participants will master a child-centered approach to preventing and responding to violence, exploitation, and abuse against children.

We invite you to join us to be the first to benefit from this important course.
