Ensuring the rights of women worldwide to reproductive health care
Date:11/30/2010

New Rochelle, NY, November 30, 2010Access to quality reproductive healthcare for women around the globe is a fundamental aspect of a woman's human rights, freedom, equity, and right to control her own body. A Special Section on Global Women's Reproductive Health in the current issue of Journal of Women's Health, a peer-reviewed publication published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., explores the compelling medical, socioeconomic, and gender-based factors that impact global women's health issues. The Special Focus articles are available free online.

Geller and Miller describe the challenges in performing reproductive health research in economically disadvantaged and low-resource settings.

The authors focus on the importance of global collaboration and community partnerships, staff training and logistical planning, and informed consent in the article entitled, "Navigating the Challenges of Global Reproductive Health Research."

They describe a mor
