Our Grantmaking in Mexico

The Foundation began making grants in Mexico in 1986 and opened an office in Mexico in 1992. Today, MacArthur operates two programs in Mexico: population and reproductive health, and human rights and justice. Support is provided to expert civil society organizations working to improve young people's access to reproductive and sexual health and to improve maternal health outcomes in rural indigenous areas; and to improve access to justice through promoting reform of the criminal justice system.
