The Hindi edition of RHM is published in New Delhi, India, by CREA (Creating Resources for Empowerment and Action), New Delhi. CREAs mission is to build feminist leadership, advance womens human rights, and expand sexual and reproductive freedoms. RHM Hindi is one of the most important publications that CREA publishes and shares with its networks and is the only peer-reviewed journal on SRHR in Hindi in India.
RHM Hindi presents theme-based academic articles, translated into Hindi. This increases the access of Hindi-speaking activists and organisations to a wide range of resource materials which otherwise are rarely made available to them. The journal is extensively used by womens health and rights advocates, health service providers, health policymakers, ministries and state health departments, non-governmental organisations, and other civil society organisations focusing on health, population, development, and human rights.
