SIROW is pleased to announce our new project Mujer Saludable on the US-Mexico Border

SIROW is pleased to announce our new project "Mujer Saludable on the US-Mexico Border:  A Promotora-led Adaptation and Expansion of a Sexual Health Education Curriculum to Address Reproductive Health Needs in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico”.

The 18 month project is fully funded by the Research Program on Migration and Health (PIMSA). SIROW and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF) will form a binational team to examine and address reproductive health needs and access to reproductive health care, specifically as it relates to women’s sexual health through the lens of mother-daughter relationships. Together, the partners will use community-based participatory research methods to a) collaboratively collect qualitative data to examine reproductive health needs and access to reproductive health care among women living in low-resource communities in Nogales, Son, MX; b) utilize the collected data and the promotora (i.e., community health worker) model to expand and adapt SIROW-UA’s sexual health curriculum Mujer Saludable, including emphasizing the mother-daughter relationship, c) pilot test the adapted Mujer Saludable-Promotora curriculum for acceptability and its potential to impact teen pregnancy and increase access to reproductive care across the lifespan, and d) utilize research findings to inform health policy at the local, state, national, and international level.
