Community Self-managed menstrual regulation with pills in Sindh Pakistan
Peace Foundation Pakistan
Peace Foundation addresses the supply and demand of self-administered safe menstrual regulation options in 120 rural villages. To improve supply, Peace Foundation trains and equips sellers at sales outlets with medication, information, counselling aids, and referral mechanisms for safe menstrual regulation and self-injected methods for family planning. These outlets are established at grocery stores, women-run shops and by donkey cart vegetable sellers. Health service providers and pharmacists assist women and girls with more complicated cases referred by the sellers, and are also involved in improving the supply of medications to local chemist shops. Peace Foundation will simultaneously address demand by disseminating information on misoprostol to women and girls, sensitizing village leaders, and conducting edutainment activities.
