Baker Institute Student Forum - Reproducing Inequities: Poverty and Politics of Population in Haiti

At a lecture and book signing hosted by the Baker Institute Student Forum (BISF), M. Catherine Maternowska discussed her latest ethnographic research concerning family planning and reproductive rights.ᅡᅠ Her research includes an examination of the impact of sexually transmitted infections, poor prenatal care and an absence of good obstetric services on the health of women living in poverty in urban California, Mexico, Haiti, Zimbabwe and Tanzania, where she currently resides. She has served as principal investigator and/or senior investigator on at least seven projects addressing gender, power, and cultural issues since working at the University of California at San Francisco.
