Considering climate change in urban sanitation
Conceptual approaches and practical implications

This paper presents a comprehensive conceptualisation of how climate change could be considered in urban sanitation policy and programming.

Given the urban sanitation crisis facing many cities in developing countries, consideration of climate change can seem like an unwanted distraction from the immediate problems at hand (Bartram, et al., 2017). Climate hazards are often perceived as …

WoMena FAQs: Is there any connection between menstrual cups and infections?

WOMENA SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Many women develop urogenital infections, such as bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections, at some point in their life. Prevalence rates of 20-30% or more have been documented in both high-, middle- and low-income countries. Many infections are asymptomatic, meaning that those who have the infection do not know.

Menstruation is a normal, physiologic …

WoMena FAQs: Does the use of menstrual cups increase the risk of toxic shock syndrome?

WOMENA RECOMMENDATIONS

The risk of developing Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) for women using Menstrual Cups (MCs) is very
low.

In 1979-80, large numbers of menstruation-associated cases of TSS appeared. In the US alone, more
than 1000 cases were reported in 1980. An ultra-absorbent tampon (Rely) was identified as a main
reason for this spike, but many other products were also associated, for …

Initial lessons learned in making sanitation data useful for decision making

Useful data is important for effective decision making. In 2017, the World Bank reported that poor data has led to an ineffective allocation of resources across the sanitation sector. The current data gap is also preventing the sanitation sector from tracking its progress in providing sanitation for people living in cities. This challenge is not insurmountable. A sector-wide response needs to …

After exploring the potential of SFDs in predicting the impact of sanitation investment projects across the sanitation service chain, a new feature was developed called “trend graphs” or “Scenario SFDs”. It allows visualizing different scenarios and giving an outlook on what the situation could look like in the future and what could be achieved through specific investments or activities. …

Comparison of Students' Acceptance of Conventional and Ecological Sanitation in Rural Schools

In rural areas of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) without reliable piped water supply, the conventional school sanitation system – the pit latrine – is leading to hygienic and environmental problems.

WoMena FAQs: Can you use a Menstrual Cup when also using an IUD?

WOMENA RECOMMENDATIONS

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 …
