For 25 years, GIRE has been dedicated to the defense and promotion of women’s reproductive rights in Mexico, within a human rights framework. GIRE utilizes inter-connected organizational strategies to achieve concrete improvements for our priority issues: access to contraception, access to safe and legal abortion, access to assisted reproduction, maternal mortality, obstetric violence and work and family life balance. The four strategies include: legal defense and accompaniment of girls, women and families; applied research; advocacy with key institutions and decision makers; and strategic communication to raise awareness and enhance advocacy and legal strategies. In addition, GIRE’s unique contribution and growing capacities include the incorporation of a reproductive justice perspective to our work. This perspective places reproductive health issues in the larger context of the well-being and health of women, families and communities.
