From September 2020, relationships, sex education and health education became compulsory in all state funded schools. As part of this pupils are taught about menstrual health and the menopause. On 8 March, the Government launched a 14-week call for evidence as part of the Women’s Health Strategy for England. The online survey within the call for evidence seeks information on the menopause. By understanding women’s experiences, we can ensure key parts of the health service are meeting women’s needs.
