Female asylum seekers and refugees face challenges in access to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) care and face disproportionate outcomes. Menstrual Health Management (MHM) has also been noted as a concern, particularly relating to a lack of knowledge and access to appropriate management methods. Implications for poor MHM are wide reaching, but there is little data relating to MHM and female refugees and asylum seekers in Denmark. Therefore, WoMena Denmark undertook a pilot to provide menstrual cups (MCs) and comprehensive educational sessions among female asylum seekers and refugees in Copenhagen. It was undertaken in collaboration with Trampoline House, which hosted the sessions through an established women’s group. The project was funded by Soroptomists and MCs were provided by OrganiCup. Educational sessions were well-received by partner staff and MCs were provided to a number of attendees. However, challenges with follow-up due to the mobility of the target group resulted in a lack of data regarding acceptability and MC use following intervention. This intervention is recognised to have positive potential, but warrants further work to gather more data and tailor evaluation processes to gain further insights.
