Menarche to Menopause

From the first period to the last, the menstrual health life cycle is riddled with challenges long neglected by policymakers and practitioners in the public health world. Featuring experts and vibrant storytellers who will showcase experience from around the world, this session will highlight current trends and responses, key concerns, and gaps in addressing menstrual health. It will also look at how menstrual health, menstruation-related disorders, and menopause have historically been addressed, and how approaches to these issues have evolved since 1994. It will provide guidance on how to build multi-sectoral and inclusive programmes and strategies on menstrual health and related issues throughout the reproductive life cycle within development and humanitarian settings. This event will be convened by the African Coalition for Menstrual Health Management (ACMHM) and the Global Menstrual Health & Hygiene (MHH) Collective.
