In India,one woman dies every 12 minutes due to complications arising out of pregnancy and childbirth. Merely 21% pregnant women receive full antenatal care and only 35% mothers receive postnatal check-ups.
Women in India continue to be plagued with inadequate - and often inaccessible - medical and health facilities and services, unsanitary infrastructure, and a lack of respect and dignity. It's time to change this, and the WRAI Photo Contest is an opportunity for you to put your lens on women's health and her rights.
All you have to do is to capture an image that shows how women's health rights and entitlements need to be placed in the centre of things. An image that holds attention on quality, access and proper healthcare services and treatment of women. Capture an emotion, interaction, activity, a woman seeking services or a service provider delivering them, or even of women at large accessing health services.
