Castillos de Arena en el Camino hacia la modernidad.
This study focuses on the availability and use of essential obstetric care in Peru, using 1997 WHO/ UNICEF/UN indicators and interviews with key donors and stakeholders. It looks at access to care in a human rights framework, discussing its relationship to health sector reforms and maternal mortality debates, and highlights how this approach can change our views of these issues. It argues that these guidelines can be used to assess progress under various human right treaties, and explains how this framework offers a more relevant model for understanding maternal mortality in Peru from that previously used.
