CEHURD focuses its efforts on critical issues of human rights and health systems in East Africa, such as sexual and reproductive health rights, trade and health, and medical ethics, which affect the vulnerable and less-advantaged populations such as women, children, orphans, sexual minorities, people living with HIV/AIDS, persons with disabilities, internally displaced persons, refugee populations, and victims of violence, torture, disasters, and conflict. Their mission is to advance health rights for vulnerable communities through an integrated program of litigation, advocacy, and action research.

PATH SENEGAL

For two decades, PATH has worked alongside the Senegalese Government, healthcare workers, private sector companies, and other stakeholders to strengthen health systems and improve health equity across Senegal. PATH’s work on self-care for sexual and reproductive health and rights is grounded in the belief that women and girls should have self-determined choice about their health and their bodies. In Senegal, PATH is advancing self-care for sexual and reproductive health and rights through policy change, coordination, and introduction of women-controlled products. In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, PATH is bringing together partners from across sectors to ensure that women and girls have the information, agency, and tools they need to manage their own health and well-being. PATH also supports the scale-up of DMPA-SC, a self-injectable contraceptive that puts the power of protection in women’s hands.
