Dataset Description (Abstract): Menstrual waste is a socio-culturally sensitive material that is usually concealed from public view, and therefore its interactions with urban sanitation and waste management infrastructure are hidden. This dataset was produced from a questionnaire survey with 258 women in Blantyre, Malawi, and contains information on the menstrual absorbents used at their last period, how they disposed of them, socio-economic characteristics, and toilet and solid waste services.
