We’ve partnered with Days for Girls and Irise Institute East Africa (IIEA)  to bring you a series of easy-to-use summaries of the MHH context for several eastern and southern African countries. The snapshots are an outcome of a webinar series hosted by Days for Girls and IIEA in early 2022, and we worked together to make the information available to you. Most importantly, we encourage you to  use it for advocacy!

The country snapshots provide a research-based, high-level overview of 3 key aspects:

  1. The MHH context: collates key information on the situation in each country,  including access to menstrual products, washrooms and water, information and education, and social support.
  2. Policy landscape: provides an overview of existing policies and strategies, product taxes and standards, and related policies that may fall under other sectors such as education or WASH.
  3. Recommended resources: click the link to access a suite of recommended resources and additional materials curated by regional experts.

The first round of reports includes Kenya, Uganda and Malawi.


Stay tuned for our next wave: Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe! If you want to collaborate to create a snapshot for your country, reach out to info@menstrualhygieneday.org
