Documentary Video: "Voices from the Ground"

This IIMMHR-SAHAYOG video documentary, Voices from the Ground, is the result of collaboration with the Mahila Swasthya Adhikar Manch (Women's Health Rights Forum) in Uttar Pradesh, India.

The film highlights the persisting challenges with the quality of services in rural health centres in Uttar Pradesh, a state with extremely high maternal mortality. The film depicts how community discussions on actual experiences of poor maternal health services lead to rights-based analyses. The local women's organizations are thus able to come together as claimants and create a demand for improvements in health services.

The film is the result of a one-year IIMMHR field project in India that was led by SAHAYOG.
