Coline Leonard. Graduate student, specialized in Gender, Development and Healthcare Studies, at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris (France).
I had the opportunity to stay for 4 months in Mujeres Aliadas, as a volunteer. I came to carry out my master degree’s thesis, and got involved with Mujeres Aliadas in order to give back time and work, since the executive team shared with me information, knowledge and warm moments.
My stay here allowed me to study the hybrid model of care that was developed to improve and extend the access to sexual and reproductive healthcare for inhabitants of Lake Pátzcuaro and the Purhépecha Highlands. I could analyze the dynamics that emerged around such healthcare model, as well as the political implications regarding sexual and reproductive rights of indigenous women within midwifery spaces.
