Menstrual health Management among Urban Refugees

Menstrual health Management among urban Refugees


Menstrual health Management among urban Refugees is a project funded by the US Embassy in Uganda and implemented by WoMena Uganda with support from local partner organizations CAFOMI and Caritas. The project intends to improve menstrual health and hygiene knowledge, attitudes and practices in Urban Refugee communities, by providing adolescent girls and boys, women and men with comprehensive menstrual health education and menstrual cups as an alternative menstrual health management method to the girls. The Project is currently being implemented in urban refugee communities of Kisenyi Lubaga division and Kabalagala in Makindye.

Project Design

The project targets to directly impact 200 Women and girls in Kisenyi and Kabalagala who are of reproductive age (16-45 Years). These will be expected to use the menstrual cup and share user experience throughout the intervention. It also aims to reach Key government officials and community members such as parents to the adolescent girls who might benefit from the intervention.

The project will be implemented in four phases;

  • Exploratory visit.
  • Community sensitization and stakeholders meeting.
  • Training of Trainers, Trail period of one month.
  • Training of beneficiaries, Distribution of the menstrual cups and Monthly monitoring visits.
