NIRH is continuing its partnership with CityMatCH, launched in 2018, to lead the Well Women, Well Communities Project addressing systemic barriers to high-quality preventative care. The San Antonio Well Woman Coalition is bringing together advocacy organizations and community members to form a community advisory boards (CAB) with the goal of fostering stronger relationships and tailoring health initiatives to residents’ needs and interests. The CAB is collaborating to identify one upstream and one downstream barrier to well woman care and then creating and implementing solutions to each. NIRH is providing CityMatCH partners with expertise on local policy related to reproductive health, rights, and justice, and in community organizing and engagement in support of the identified initiatives.
