This grant would allow the Grupo de Información en Reproducción Elegida (GIRE) to promote women’s access to and exercise of reproductive rights by strengthening transparency and accountability. GIRE will analyze information regarding the Mexican government’s compliance with national and international human rights standards, focusing on six reproductive rights: safe and legal abortion, contraception, maternal mortality, obstetric violence, work and family life, and assisted reproduction. The grant would support the development of the second edition of the Report on Reproductive Rights in Mexico, part of an advocacy strategy to hold the federal and local governments accountable (via national and state human rights commissions) and carry out strategic litigation of cases of reproductive rights violations.
