About the Project

Redressing Gendered Health Inequalities of Displaced Women and Girls in Contexts of Protracted Crisis in Central and South America (ReGHID) is an interdisciplinary and international consortium that builds new research and advocacy for more effective and inclusive attention to the sexual and reproductive health needs and rights for displaced women and adolescent girls from Central America and Venezuela.

Participants are drawn from leading research institutions in Central and South America region (Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico) and the Universities of Southampton and York. It benefits from the participation of key regional intergovernmental including the Council of Ministries of Health for Central America (COMISCA), the regional office of the International Organisation for Migrations (IOM), Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF, Mexico), ABRASCO (Brazil) and FLACSO/Costa Rica. The consortium represents a unique balance of relevant research and policy experience.

ReGHID is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) at UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) to address development-based approaches to protracted displacement.
