The review paper aims to identify possible linkages to SRHR-related issues, and to provide an overview of MHM policies and programs in the ESA region, with a focus on education, school and community-based sexuality education, WASH, sexual and reproductive health, workplace support and humanitarian programming, as well as opening up the discussion regarding marginalized groups of women and girls such as disabled, prisoners and transgender men. It addresses barriers and enablers for scalability of MHM programs such as knowledge, attitudes, and cultural perceptions, availability of menstrual products and supplies and sanitation facilities, and policy. Furthermore, the review aims to identify research gaps both in terms of topics and methodological issues, and providing recommendations for how to address the gaps identified.
Leading up to the UNFPA Menstrual Health Management Symposium, WoMena was commissioned by UNFPA East and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) to produce a literature review of current Menstrual Health Management (MHM) in East and Southern Africa.
