Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and menstrual health (MH) are fundamental to health, well-being, and gender equity. SRH and MH have deeply intertwined roots, biologically and socio-culturally; yet over the years, these integral components of health have not been addressed in conjunction, with joint programming or integration often overlooked in programs, policy and research, globally and in India.

A stark gap in both policy and program interventions is the limited focus on individuals across the reproductive life span, often overlooking the MH needs of adult women, and on understanding and meeting the needs of PwD, those with gender diverse identities, and those facing crises and emergencies. These are important gaps to be addressed through integration.
