About IIMMHR's Field Projects
Our field projects in India, Kenya and Peru aspire to increase our understanding of how to integrate human rights ideas and approaches into maternal mortality work at national, sub-national and local levels. They also seek to build bridges among human rights, public health, and women’s rights groups.
While each project focuses on a particular aspect of maternal mortality reduction efforts, they all share some common features:
They offer innovative approaches to using human rights in programs aiming to reduce maternal mortality.
They focus on disadvantaged groups and/or seek to address issues of inequity.
They strengthen our understanding of a human rights framework and practice.
They have a capacity to influence policy makers and other actors in order to better incorporate a human rights approach to maternal mortality.
