Dear companeras of LACWHN:
We want to make contact with you in order to learn more about your work and to see if we can become a part of your network.
Our non-governmnetal organization SEHAS, has been working for 20 years in poor neighborhoods in Cordoba on issues of housing and living conditions. Since 1995, we have worked with a gender perspective on women's issues. In this area, we have carried out a two-year program with women from grassroots organizations, training them as community advocates on the issues of women, health, rights, living conditions and violence.
The members of our gender issues team are currently involved with projects that address the topic of gender in mixed groups with both women and men. We are also taking part in the Comision Interhospitalaria y Sectorial de Salud Sexual y Reproductiva (Sectoral and Inter-Hospital Commission on Sexual and Reproductive Health).
We look forward to hearing from you!
Equipo Genero SEHAS
Greetings. I am pleased to inform you that my non-governmental organization, FOVIDA, is beginning to work on the issue of health as a civil right, with an emphasis on improving the quality of health services.
Could you please send me information on citizen participation, health service management, and health as a civil right?
I also would like to know if you would be able to send me a list of institutions that finance projects in this area.
Thank you in advance for your response.
I am a Peruvian medical student, and I obtained this address through an organization that works on women's issues.
As a student of this subject, I think it is very important to take part in activities at a global level in order to achieve gender equality and to create a situation in which women are respected.
In contribution to this effort, I am pleased to send you and annotated bibliography that I prepared on the issue of Female Genital Mutilation.
If others of your network are interested, please have them contact me.

We would like to offer your readers information about our women's group Nueva Identidad (New Identity). With young women in the Red Panamena de Jovenes por los Derechos Sexuales y Derechos Reproductivos (Panamanian Network of Young People for Sexual Rights and Reproductive Rights), we are starting a project that uses theater as a means of communication. We are also a part of the Red Latinoamericana y Caribena de Jovenes por los Derechos Sexuales y Reproductivos (Latin American and Caribbean Network of Young People for Sexual and Reproductive Rights).
We are currently preparing a work plan for this year, and we need a great deal of support since we are a new organization. We hope to stay in touch and perhaps to send you information for your magazine. We have received several interesting issues, and we would like to collaborate with an article about the work that we are currently undertaking with young people.
Nueva Identidad, Organizacion
