Passport Series Presentation with Dr. Michelle Dubón

Dr. Michelle Dubón, Medical Director at WINGS Guatemala

Since 2015, Dr. Dubón has overseen all technical aspects of clinical services provided by WINGS. She has been in practice since 2004 and has specialized in OB-GYN services since 2008. Along with providing administrative oversight, Dr. Dubón works with three other surgeons to provide tubal ligations and vasectomies, making WINGS one of the few places in Guatemala that anyone over 18 can get a permanent surgical contraceptive operation without a partner’s consent or proof of multiple children. Michelle was part of the 2019 class of the Aspen Institute New Voices Fellowship, a group of 25 leaders from the Global South who work on the frontlines of global development and health. Dr. Dubón has also been instrumental in assuring that WINGS meets the highest international standards of surgical health care.

Reproductive Rights are Human Rights: It All Begins with Reproductive Rights

Women’s International Network for Guatemalan Solutions (WINGS) is a non-profit organization that provides quality reproductive health education and services, primarily to indigenous Guatemalans. In her presentation, Dr. Dubón will discuss how the organization operates and the challenges they face when providing SRHR services to their patients, most of which live in rural areas.
