Upcoming seminar | Correlates of absenteeism at work, school and social activities during menstruation in Ghana

Speaker – Emmanuel Anongeba Anaba

Emmanuel Anongeba Anaba is a WHO scholar and final-year PhD candidate in Public Health at the University of Ghana. Previously, Emmanuel served as a Research Assistant at the University of Ghana and as a part-time Lecturer at the University of Education, Ghana.

Emmanuel will describe the methods and findings from a study examining the factors contributing to absenteeism during menstruation among Ghanaian women of reproductive age, using data from the 2017/2018 Ghana Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey.
