Menstruation is a natural physiological process that requires proper management. Studies show that many persons who menstruates do not have the means for self-care and do not get the support they need, which hinders their ability to carry on with everyday activities and may also establish a foundation for life-long disempowerment.


Menstrual stigma and health risk do not kill like unsafe abortion, but it blights health and development.
It hinders peoples abilities to carry out every day activities, weakens their self-esteem and conditions poor health-care seeking (Chandra-Mouli and Patel, Reproductive Health, 2017). 


Together with Mensual you can address this issue by providing persons that menstruate with hygienic and functional sanitary products.
