About 25 percent of the world’s population menstruate, but how girls and women manage menstruation periods is an under researched topic. Myths, misconceptions and ignorance about menstrual health aggravate human rights, education and gender equality. In line with the global goals – to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change – menstrual health should be a fundamental right.

A menstrual cup is a possible sustainable solution to menstrual management in low-income settings.

What do the global goals say about menstruation? How do you manage your menstrual period in Uganda? Can the menstrual cup become a sustainable solution for menstrual hygiene management?

Sida Alumni Natasha Wrang shares her insights from a study with the organisation WoMena in the city of Gulu in Uganda, where girls were interviewed about their experiences of using menstrual cups.

When? Monday 9/4, 18.00-19.30. (The doors will open at 17.45.)
Where? Studiefrämjandet Lund, Fabriksgatan 2

There are a limited numbers of spots for this event. To attend, you need to register.

Snacks and beverages are provided.
