Sonya Soni interned for the Partners in Health's Nyaya Health Project in rural Achham, Nepal. Nyaya Health utilizes a human rights-based approach towards providing comprehensive primary health services for one of the most impoverished regions of South Asia. Achham suffers from a recent civil war, a broken health care system, and one the world's highest mortality rates. Sonya worked alongside Nyaya Health's partners, the Nepali Ministry of Health and Achham community members, in order to help develop a public health education system in Achham's primary schools that strives to increase girls' participation in Achham's health care system.
