The Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research is featuring Hanna Ingber Win's reporting on maternal mortality in India. Below is an excerpt from C-NES website:

In a series of blogs for the Pulitzer Centre, which is funding her travel and writing about family planning and maternal mortality issues in India, Hanna, a cheerful and thoughtful individual, writes with devastating insight and a brisk anecdotal narrative that makes her work truly luminous and throws clear light on the stupendous task that the boat clinic teams, often unsung and unseen, are doing.


Three women grouped together: an elderly woman smiling, a transwoman with her arms folded, and a woman holding her headscarf with a baby strapped to her back.
