About Us

Working under the aegis of the Centre for Agro-Ecology and Development, Women's Reproductive Rights Program (WRRP) addresses uterine prolapse as an issue of reproductive rights rather than a mere medical problem. It considers the problem as one of the consequences of the sub-ordination of women rooted in prevalent patriarchal structures of the society. The program is built on the experiences of its work on UP initiated in the far western part of the country since 1999. WRRP is being recognized as a resource organization and one of country’s lead institutions working on UP issues.
