CARE FOR TEENS

Based on UNICEF data, 1 in 4 girls in Indonesia never received information about menstruation before experiencing their first menstruation.

The Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) in 2017 shows that 1 in 5 girls do not know that menstruation is a sign that they are physically able to get pregnant.

IDHS 2017 also shows that 1 in 5 girls in Indonesia experience difficulties in accessing or purchasing sanitary napkins, and 1 in 10 feel embarrassed and lack privacy in accessing menstrual sanitation facilities.
