Roots of Health

Roots of Health

Roots of Health empowers women and girls to secure their right to health and freedom from violence, and to support and protect the health and well-being of their families. The organisation seeks to improve the reproductive health of women and girls and to help reduce the incidence of maternal mortality. They also recognize the importance of girls delaying pregnancy and staying in school. Therefore they provide health education and clinical services in communities and in the local university and high school populations.

Roots of Health works by fostering self-reliance, providing scientifically-based, accurate information on health, and improving both health-seeking behavior and access to Reproductive Health services. Programming is community or classroom-based, and utilizes a human rights framework, which includes the core belief that health is a human right.
