Title: A Feasibility Study of introducing a Menstrual Health Component into four Secondary Schools in Buikwe District, Uganda (phase 1)
WoMena Uganda is an NGO working to formally integrate Menstrual Health Management (MHM) into national and international frameworks through the development of knowledge, evidence, and strategies to address research, communication and policy translation gaps. WoMena Uganda is implementing activities aimed at improving the menstrual experiences of girls and women in both development and humanitarian contexts in target communities.
In Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), menstrual health is often considered a taboo and many girls and women lack access to safe and appropriate menstrual health management (MHM) products. This can have far-reaching implications for women and girls’ physical, social and mental wellbeing, as well as for their sexual reproductive health and rights. These MHM issues are often further exacerbated by insufficient access to safe and private toilets, and lack of clean water and soap for personal hygiene. As a result, many women and girls in SSA have to manage their periods in ineffective, uncomfortable and unhygienic ways, contributing to them feeling shame and restricting them from reaching their full potential in e.g. social, school, or work settings. This Report bring findings & results about WoMena Initiatives for MHM in Buikwe District.
