Menstruation, the silent public health crisis

Published on 12.04.2021 at 13:26

This research on menstruation contextualises the more detailed study of menstruation and MHM and provides insight into its importance in the public health arena. It provides an overview of what menstruation and MHM entail and how it is measured. The research’s background information reveals the impact of the problem in terms of numbers and distribution based on the secondary research. To understand MHM’s place in the public health arena, the study further explores the relationship between public health and MHM as well as its historical placement in the public health arena.

 

Furthermore, the study evaluates the specific public health areas affected by MHM namely inequality, menstrual poverty, menstrual hygiene, education, physical and mental health, taboo and stigma, and its environmental impact. This in sum, illustrates the magnitude of challenges faced in MHM and informs their identification.  The methodology of the study is later set out to provide a clear understanding of the primary and secondary research methods with a specific mention of the study area, and research analysis with the goal to identify the most pressing challenges in the field of MHM. 

 

Finally, the study makes known and analyse the data and findings of the primary and secondary research as viewed by organisations such as the UN and WHO, national and local governments, communities, and individuals before discussing the data to reach the objective of putting forth suggested possible innovative solutions to current challenges faced in the field of Menstrual Health/Hygiene Management (MHM). Throughout the research, referring to people who menstruate as women or girls is used as shorthand to expedite reading but refers to all who menstruate whether girls, women, transgender, and non-binary persons.
