Innovation Description

Menstruation and sexual health are taboo topics in Indonesia. A culture of silence contributes to a lack of knowledge on menstruation and SRHR. In rural areas, access to products to manage menstruation hygienically are limited and are not cost-effective long-term. Females are often not aware of their SRHR needs or are too embarrassed to discuss their problems, negatively influencing health seeking behaviour. This is reflected in low uptake of SRHR services and poor SRHR indicators (1,2).
