Abstract: This thesis investigates an NGO's primary maternal healthcare services, provided by the NGO's health worker in rural Gujarat. The focus of this research is on the beneficiaries who utilize the primary maternal healthcare services provided by the NGO's health worker to determine changes the NGO has brought into the region, especially related to access and availability of maternal healthcare services in the region. This research focuses Paul Farmer's framework of structural violence, and examines how the NGO has addressed the issue ofstructural violence in the region to make maternal healthcare services accessible, and affordable particularly for the women. By focusing the perspective of the beneficiaries this research intends to determine if the NGO addresses the needs and demands of the region it works within.
