Summary Just as the rivers of the Andes mountains twist and coil in a curious maze, so does the grave situation of Peruvian women's health care. Within the past decade, the Andean women in Peru have faced a massive sterilization campaign, exorbitant fines for homebirths, remnants of a deadly civil war, and the second highest maternal death rate in South America. Yet, as they have for centuries, the Quechua and Aymara people are fighting to preserve their traditions, beliefs and integrity
