Our Team

We are committed to developing a framework and theory of menstrual justice

The Team

The project is led by our Principal Investigator, Dr. Melanie Channon, a Reader in Social Policy at the University of Bath, UK. With her expertise and passion for social policy, Dr. Channon is committed to developing a framework and theory of menstrual justice that will bring about lasting positive change for women and girls in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Collaborating closely with Dr. Channon are our esteemed partners Dr. Mahesh Puri from CREHPA, Nepal, and Dr Carmen Alvarado Benitez from 32 Volcanes, Guatemala. Together, they bring invaluable knowledge, skills, and insights into the unique challenges faced by adolescent girls in their respective countries.

This work is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) under the UK government’s Horizon Europe funding guarantee, enabling our team to pursue innovative research and impactful interventions that will contribute to menstrual justice in policy and practice.
