At AFRIpads, we believe that the best way to build knowledge on Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH) is to speak directly to women and girls about their own experiences. We were therefore so excited when the IOM - UN Migration Mozambique office engaged AFRIpads to undertake a pilot study. The aim of the pilot study was to build better understanding of the acceptability and appropriateness of AFRIpads reusable sanitary pads among women and adolescents aged 13-29 in Mozambique.

AFRIpads exists because we believe menstruation should not be a barrier for any woman, anywhere. Women are the backbone of our societies and they deserve access to safe and dignified solutions to managing their periods, and the freedom to rise to their dreams and achieve their true potential.
