Happy Menstrual Hygiene Day from the CTI Exchange!
As we've explored previously in posts on the CTI Exchange, the development and introduction of new contraceptive technologies is impacted by user's experiences with contraceptive-induced menstrual changes, or CIMCs. Thanks to recent work from researchers and implementers in both the family planning and menstrual health fields, including the work of the CIMC Task Force, this topic has garnered more and more attention. There are also a lot more resources available for researchers, product developers, health care providers, program implementers, advocates, policymakers, and funders who are interested in conducting research and implementing strategies to address the beneficial and negative effects of CIMCs and support the integration of family planning and menstrual health. In celebration of Menstrual Hygiene Day this week on May 28, we have compiled all of these resources in one place:
