We work in over
40 communities in the area around Lake Patzcuaro and five more in the Meseta Purépecha
and conducted a pilot program in 2012 in 10 communities along the Chiapas and
24,500 indigenous and mestizo women have participated in our community presentations
on topics such as: “Know and care for your body”, “Humanized child delivery”,
“Vaginal Infections”, “Professional Midwifery” and “Human Papiloma Virus”. The three
coordinators of this program are women leaders in their communities, who work together
with the professional midwives.
