French speakers: translation advice?

For my Francophone colleagues from West Africa, how would you translate "Menstrual Hygiene Management"? So far, I have been advised to use this: LA GESTION DE L’HYGIÈNE MENSTRUELLE. Is there a better term to use that may be more understandable to those outside the WASH community?

Thanks,
Alec

Alec

Bonjour, oui la gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle est utilisée. Dans les textes explicatifs je trouve que c'est plus clair de parler des règles pour traduire menstruations.

Hi Alec,

At CAWST we use Gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle. I believe this is the standard terminology in our sector.

Hope this helps,

Ana
