In Mexico, maternal mortality is an issue of discrimination. It affects particularly those women who live in extreme poverty, those who live in remote communities, those who do not have access to public health care and the youngest women (between 10 and 14 years of age).
Mexico did not meet its Millennium Development Goal of reducing maternal mortality by 75%. While maternal deaths were reduced by 45%, this is insufficient, given that all are preventable.
Maternal mortality is the ultimate expression of obstetric violence. GIRE works tirelessly to achieve measures of non-repetition that generate structural change in the health care system. We also provide legal counsel for families of women who have died from maternal causes and accompany them in their search for justice.
