Menstrual Equity and Health in Spain Study


The study “Menstrual Equity and Health in Spain” has focused on researching menstrual inequities and health among women and people who menstruate between 18 and 55 years old in Spain. This is a mixed-methods research that was conducted between 2020 and 2022. It has contributed to make menstrual inequity and health needs visible in this context. One of the main conclusions is that policy and community actions need to focus on addressing structural factors that generate and maintain menstrual inequities. This study has been led by Dr Laura Medina-Perucha and funded by the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health.
