We Focus On

PSI-Europe serves as the technical hub for Menstrual Health & Hygiene, supporting PSI and network members on integrating MHH programming into other existing programs. PSI-Europe also uses this expertise to advocate for the importance of and funding for MHH programming. Through this project, PSI-Europe produces technical materials for the community of practice, convenes partners and funders, and develops program strategies and project proposals for MHH.

All people have the right to make decision over their own bodies and have the right to access the information and services they need to be able to make those decisions. PSI-Europe leads PSI’s strategy, thinking, and capacity to deliver on rights-based programming. PSI-Europe promotes a user-centered methodology to engage users more deeply in the design of the care they can receive and to design for the needs of both rights bearers and duty holders in SRHR.

As a European entity staffed by a European team, PSI-Europe promotes the PSI network among European partners and funders, and advocates for priority programming such as Menstrual Health & Hygiene and consumer-powered programs.
