About this event

Join Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) for an evening of music, activism and conversation around menstrual health and human rights.

The event will begin at 6:30pm, with short talks from Dr Chi Eziefula (Global Health, BSMS), and Environmenstrual campaigners Wen — followed by an hour-long show from the Ganda Boys at 7pm, and the opportunity for conversation, networking and light refreshments after the performance.


  • The Ganda Boys are a UK-based, African fusion band that combine soulful, emotional, African songs and chants with activism, creating music that advocates for social change; their charity foundation has helped lift over 7000 young people out of period poverty
  • Dr Chi Eziefula is a Senior Lecturer in BSMS' Global Health and Infection department. Her research interests include: Infectious Diseases, Women’s Global Health; menstrual health; human rights; social justice and environmental sustainability
