WoMena’s SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Which, and how many, products are used? This FAQ focuses on disposable or reusable products, which
are commercially available. Little information is available on traditional or homemade products. Estimates

30 products per cycle (390 annually), …
Based on available evidence, expert opinion, recommendations from health authorities as well as
from manufacturers, there is little scientific evidence to indicate that menstrual cup use
increases the risk of IUD expulsion, and therefore little reason for IUD users to exclude using
an MC. In the spirit of precaution, and until better evidence is available, possible …

SMCR was the first multidisciplinary …

Addressing urban sanitation requires a concurrent focus on both infrastructure and service delivery systems. Where on-site sanitation is the main type of sanitation, as in the programme cities, a focus on safe faecal sludge management was required. Regular emptying of on-site containment systems is a key service delivery challenge that provides an entry point for improving urban sanitation …
