MRHR Collective

To ensure the highest standards of maternal and reproductive healthcare 
for women and girls in low-income communities.


MRHR collective conducts research and programs that strengthen the health system to ensure the highest quality of health services for women and girls in low-income and marginalized communities.


At MRH Research Collective, we develop and deliver holistic programs by ensuring we incorporate the voices of women and their communities into all interventions and collaborate with the breadth of stakeholders that influence the health system. In addition, our programs leverage and generate rigorous evidence that refines our programming so that we can ensure healthcare is equitable, respectful, responsive, and of high quality.

What we do

We deliver programs and generate evidence that facilitates access to equitable, high quality and respectful health care for women and girls in low-income communities in partnership with national and local governments and private health care providers.

We train health workers and improve medical education, working with medical, midwifery, nursing, pharmaceutical organizations and other related training bodies by incorporating the best evidence and evaluation of training received and integrating training into pre-service and in/post-service training.

We develop advocacy for strengthening healthcare delivery systems through research and policy development that deliver high-impact and sustainable outcomes for women and girls.

We provide health financing support for institutional interventions and care delivery at the grassroots to women using traditional and innovative finance vehicles in partnership with public, private and development sector players.
