ListenUp: Amplifying Girls' Voices Through Sanitary Pads and Health Information

Elizabeth Ombech of ZanaAfrica Group Ltd. in Kenya seeks to implement safe, accurate, and cost-effective reproductive health innovations for girls--in the form of disposable sanitary pads coupled with girl-centered reproductive health information and resources--and to evaluate this approach against traditional facilitation-based methods for impact on girls' educational attainment, sexual behavior, reproductive health, and self-determination in order to expand the global evidence base surrounding the role of menstrual health-focused interventions in gender parity, health, and development.
