“The weather is not good”: exploring the menstrual health experiences of menstruators with and without disabilities in Vanuatu.

Menstrual health is essential for gender equality and achieving the sustainable development goals.

Though currently lacking, understanding and addressing menstrual health and social related inequalities requires comparison of experiences between menstruators with and without disabilities. This study shows that Negative factors affecting all menstruators disproportionately impact those with disabilities, compounding existing inequalities. Menstruators with disabilities may have reported less interference because they are accustomed to greater participation restrictions than others.
