Redressing Gendered Health Inequalities of Displaced Women (ReGHID)

Several women

Funder: Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)

ReGHID is led by Pia Riggirozzi (PAIR) and co-investigators David Owen (PAIR), Amos Channon and Sarah Neil (SSD). The consortium brings together research institutions in Central and South America (Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico), University of York (UK) and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations including COMISCA, IOM/ El Salvador, MSF/ Mexico), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and FLACSO/Costa Rica.

The project directly addresses two development challenges: Poor sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of women and adolescent girls in situations of forced migration in Latin America, particularly in situations of displacement; and the challenges and responsibilities of countries of transit and settlement in terms of responding to those health needs and rights. In response ReGHID will:

  1. develop new and age-disaggregated quantitative and qualitative data on the impact of displacement on the SRH needs of women and adolescent girls from Central America and Venezuela
  2. identify impact on host governments, and on their ability to deliver basic (health) services
  3. deliver SRH awareness of the broad spectrum of needs, including guidance, skills and information to equip them to articulate their needs and rights effectively

These issues are crucial to the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 agenda in relation to gender equality more generally.
