Menstrual Health Management

Every month, 1.8 billion people across the world menstruate. Millions of these girls, women, transgender men and non-binary persons are unable to manage their menstrual cycle in a dignified, healthy way.

The onset of menstruation means a new phase – and new vulnerabilities – in the lives of adolescents. Yet, many adolescent girls face stigma, harassment and social exclusion during menstruation. Transgender men and non-binary persons also face discrimination due to their gender identity, depriving them of access to the materials and facilities they need.

We break the taboos and norms through our youth peer provider model “Rafiki” integrated with anonymous notes (questions) to initiate discussions from adolescents and youth in the rural communities. We reduce period poverty, sex for pads among youth through provision of menstrual cups that can be used for a period of 10 years.
