This report seeks to understand:
(1) the current state of girls’ experience with menarche and MHM in Kenya,
(2) the donor, government, and NGO responses to girls’ needs, and
(3) opportunities for research, advocacy,
and programming to better address these needs.
This complements a Global Landscape Analysis and is one of three Country Landscape Analyses focused on India, Kenya, and Ethiopia.
This report provides an assessment of the menstrual health sector and identifies opportunities for the field to improve girls’ dignity and empowerment in Kenya. It is the result of a review of over 50 peer-reviewed articles and grey literature; over 25 interviews with policymakers, researchers, and practitioners living or working in Kenya; and a review of relevant programming focused on menstruation, MHM, sexual reproductive health, and sanitation.
The country research for Kenya was also informed by 36 interviews with adolescent girls from Kangundo in Machakos County and Kawangware in Western Nairobi County in the following categories: (1) early post-menarche 0 to 1 year post-menarche, (2) post-menarche 1 to 3 years post-menarche, and (3) late post-menarche 3+ years post-menarche up to 18 years old. Interviews were also conducted with 7 influencers including mothers, sisters, teachers, and community health care workers.
The regions were selected based on the following criteria: (1) urban setting and rural setting for contrast, (2) proximity to Nairobi for feasibility, and (3) safety and access for trained moderators.

If you tick two options within one filter parameter, then this is treated as an "or" search, meaning either of them could be true. But if you tick two filters for two different parameters then this is treated as an "and" search, i.e. both parameters must be true to return a result. If anything is unclear about how the filter and search combinations work, just contact us: email@example.com
You can run the country filter for the projects by clicking on “Select countries”. However, if you want to combine the country filter with another filter parameter, then you need to operate the “apply filter” button twice: You need to firstly filter by country, then secondly filter by the other filter parameter(s) (or vice versa). To run the filter you need to click on the “apply filter” button.
