The Menstrual Health Community of Practice (CoP) was established in 2020 and aims to learn, share, and create knowledge on menstrual health that can be used to further include it into SRHR programmes and that contributes to it being an international agenda priority.
The CoP meets regularly and has 10 members from KIT Royal Tropical Institute, Simavi, PSI-Europe as well as a large number of independent researchers/consultants/menstrual health enthusiasts. Since 2021, the CoP has been focusing its efforts on the topic of menstrual health in the workplace. So far in 2023, they have completed a small scale research on the topic of experiences of menstrual health in the Dutch Workplace place in the Netherlands, and organised a dialogue with international experts which looked at the different type of menstrual health needs that different type of workplaces have.
The CoP often creates social media content for relevant menstrual health days and is dedicated to busting stigma, normalising menstrual health and creating a holistic view of this issue.
The CoP currently is for Share-Net Netherlands members only and is open to accepting new members on a rolling basis. If you’re interested in joining or learning more, please reach out to us!
There are currently no planned annual activities for the CoP
