Mexico: Progress and Prospects
Mexico has made significant strides in strengthening human rights, reproductive rights and women’s health over the last three decades, and the Foundation has been proud to partner with the many people and organizations behind that important work. Over the next year, we will chronicle those accomplishments through a series of stories highlighting both progress and prospects for the future.
Professional midwifery is a growing field in Mexico, helping to improve women’s access to humane reproductive healthcare.
Repository of Documentation on Disappearances in Mexico will collect evidence from disappearances to support families of the disappeared and investigations into human rights abuses.
