Reproductive Health Project
This training project is designed to have a broad impact on the general health (specifically the health of women and babies) in two large zones of Chiapas, Mexico. The formal training begins with a core group of five experienced women health promoters who travel, each month, to a central educational center to meet with specialized teams of medical professionals. During the week-long session, the “trainer of trainers” group creates, through discussion and exchange, a thematic module or curriculum which will then be shared with other women who are functioning, at some capacity, as health care providers in their communities.
In the weeks between the monthly training sessions, the women who have participated in the development of the training modules travel to each of three rural centers to train other Indigenous women health promoters in a continuing monthly training cycle. This monthly training cycle is envisioned as a three year project and is the first time that specialized information of this depth and specificity regarding sexual and gynecological functioning has been made available to Indigenous women health promoters for use in their community based practices.

The cost to support and train all 60 of the women who are participating in this training is about $3,000 a month. Your monthly donation of $50 will support one woman health care trainer for one month.
