Helping Women and Girls Face the Challenges of Post Earthquake Haiti

Next Wednesday marks the one year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake.  In the year since the earthquake, women and girls have faced some critical challenges.  Gender Based Violence is rampant in Haiti’s sprawling tent cities; maternal mortality is still the highest in the western hemisphere; and teenage pregnancies are becoming more and more common.

I speak with Tamara Kreinin, the executive director of women and population at the UN Foundation (disclosure) about some of the challenges facing women and girls in Haiti–and what local groups, the UN and the international community are doing to support reproductive health and female empowerment.  Have a listen and let me know what you think.
