MEXICO CITY, MEXICO — A grant to Kinal Antsetik will support the creation of a pilot model for culturally sensitive maternal health care appropriate for rural indigenous contexts in Mexico, to be tested in a Community Hospital in Guerrero state. Kinal will also strengthen indigenous leadership and advocacy for maternal and reproductive health through a training program in reproductive and sexual health, advocacy, human rights, and public policy. Efforts will also be made to improve local transparency and accountability for maternal health programs.
