Bhoruka Public Welfare Trust has been working in five Eastern Indian States (Assam, Bihar, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal) to promote reproductive health by advocating the reproductive rights of poor women in this region. Their work showed that the various socio-cultural backgrounds of women in these communities and their geographical locations also affected their health seeking behaviors, with most being based either on international borders, coastal regions or conflict regions.
