URC staff article in Global Health Magazine highlights efforts to reduce disrespect and abuse of women during childbirth

Disrespectful and Abusive Treatment of Women During Childbirth, an article by URC staff members Sarah Whitmarsh and Maura Gaughan, was recently published in the online Global Health Magazine. The article describes the long-neglected abuse and disrespect many women face while receiving childbirth care in both developing and developed countries.  URC's USAID-funded Translating Research into Action (TRAction) Project aims to understand and document the extent of the problem and ways to reduce the abuse through grants to research organizations.
