Managing Menstrual Hygiene

Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) – an innovative smartphone-based population survey – just released a second brief on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) from Lagos, Nigeria.

Results from the second round of data collection in Lagos found that 85% of women ages 15 to 49 have everything they need for proper MHM – such as clean materials, a facility, pain medication, and places to dispose of used products. Additionally, women in Lagos are more likely to have safe, clean and private MHM facilities compared to women in Kaduna State, Nigeria. Findings also include which environments women are using for MHM. The survey included 1,429 females of reproductive age (15 to 49 years).

These results are in stark contrast to our first MHM brief, released earlier, for Kaduna State, Nigeria. “[These results from Lagos] are just another reminder of the stark differences between regions. Among women. We are actually several countries in Nigeria” comments Dr. Elizabeth Omoluabi, Principal Investigator for the PMA2020/Nigeria survey.
