Currently in the planning stage, the partnership with ASAP aims to improve service delivery and monitoring in the greater Mutare region of Eastern Zimbabwe.

In Manicaland Province - eastern Zimbabwe, ASAP in partnership with Action on Women and Girls' Health (AOWGH) are working on a project that seeks to ensure all girls in the project area use safe and comfortable sanitary during their period. The ability to manage one’s menstrual health with adequate knowledge, safety, and dignity and without stigma is an essential human right. While many have faced challenges to achieve this right, the present economic situation in Zimbabwe makes this really hard significantly increasing the numbers of women affected. Consequently, there are now many girls and women in low-resource settings that are not well prepared when menstruation begins. They lack access to information, products, and infrastructure needed to comfortably manage menstruation. Girls’ and women’s health, well-being, and rights are thus compromised when they must isolate themselves from their families; avoid work, community activities, or school; and face risks to their physical safety because of their basic biology. Documented studies show that adolescent girls are especially vulnerable to negative outcomes related to menstruation, including effects on their overall self-esteem and confidence. There can be no doubt that women’s menstural health is a leading issue and it touches each and everyone of us.
