Human Rights Policy and Nonprofit Organizational Development

Sexual and Reproductive Health Organization in Mexico

In Policy Blog on April 2, 2009 at 4:55 am

I just started  a consulting project with a Mexican NGO based in Yucatan that does sexual and reproductive health care based on an empowerment and human rights model.  Servicios Humanitarios en Salud Sexual y Reproductiva (SHSSR, or Humanitarian Sexual and Reproductive Health Services) was founded by visionary physician Sandra Peniche, who is dedicated to promoting women’s human rights and the eradication of preventible death among women in the Yucatan region.


From the SHSSR blog:

En Servicios Humanitarios en Salud Sexual y Reproductiva (SHSSR) ofrecemos servicios médicos, psicológicos y legales de alta calidad y bajo costo. Puede acudir con nosotras para recibir orientación y atención para la interrupción legal del embarazo. Nuestros servicios son de alta especialidad médica y primera en su tipo en el sureste mexicano.

Their great work is highlighted in these YouTube videos, and articles by Dr. Peniche (in Spanish) are available here.
