Our Approaches in Sexual, Reproductive, and Maternal Health
CARE for Moms
Learn how CARE is giving mothers the interventions they need to get an education, raise healthier and better-educated children, develop their own sources of income and become leaders in their communities.
Working with our partners, we use effective models and approaches to support the most marginalized communities to overcome poverty, social injustice and humanitarian crises. We then use and apply the evidence and learning of our programs to influence broader change and to scale up effective solutions. CARE’s SRMH work focuses on the following areas: Sexual, Reproductive, and Maternal Health & Governance; Gender, Sexuality and Rights; Sexual and Reproductive Health in Emergencies; and Health Systems Support and Innovation.
Health Systems Support
We work with frontline health care workers to strengthen health systems to ensure that women and girls have access to quality, rights-based SRMH services, and to link community and health systems in a virtuous cycle of quality improvement and respectful, rights-based care.
Gender, Sexuality, and Rights
We partner with communities to challenge and transform the inequitable gender norms that restrict women’s and girls’ ability to realize their SRMH rights, including working with community leaders and engaging men and boys as allies in transformative change for gender justice.
Our goal in the challenging environments of emergencies, post-conflict and disaster settings is to protect the health and well-being of women, girls, men, and boys and to promote gender equality by increasing access to essential SRMH services and programs across all phases of the emergency continuum.
