Menstrual Justice: Achieving the Right to a Good Period in low-and middle-income countries

We are driven by a powerful vision: to transform the menstrual experiences of women and girls, empowering them to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

We recognize that menstruation is a vital aspect of life that has been overlooked for far too long, both in research and policy.

As we embark on this ambitious journey, our mission is to develop a groundbreaking framework and theory of menstrual justice that addresses the unique needs of adolescent girls in Nepal and Guatemala.

By employing a mixed-methods approach, we will delve deep into the complex domains of menstrual justice, taking a critical look at existing national and international policies around menstruation.

Our focus goes beyond the current scope of school-based interventions to encompass broader community attitudes and those who may not be in school.

MeJARa is not only about understanding the challenges; it’s about creating lasting solutions.

In partnership with adolescent girls, their families, and the wider community, we will develop a comprehensive intervention to address menstrual injustice.

Our approach is centered on feasibility, acceptability, and scalability, ensuring that our interventions have a meaningful and sustainable impact.

This mixed-methods approach means project critically examines existing policies and expands beyond school-based interventions to address broader community attitudes.

In collaboration with adolescent girls, families, and communities, MeJARa seeks to create comprehensive, feasible, acceptable, and scalable interventions that address menstrual injustice, ultimately ensuring meaningful and sustainable impacts.

Join us in our quest to break the silence and transform the lives of millions of women and girls across the globe.

Through MeJARa, we hope to redefine menstrual justice and create a world where every individual can embrace their menstrual experience with confidence and dignity.

At MeJARa we are proud to champion inclusivity and diversity.

We appreciate and celebrate the rich variety of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives that our team, partners, and communities contribute.
