Menstrual health in India - Pushing the Boundaries

Dear MHM community,

Several partners (Development Solutions Inc, PATH, WaterAid, WSSCC, and Zariya) in the Menstrual Health Alliance India (MHAI) developed the attached series of documents - Pushing the Boundaries on the Menstrual Health Management Dialogue - for Menstrual Hygiene Day 2017.

The series covers three key menstrual health themes—normalizing taboos, menstrual hygiene products (access, affordability, and appropriateness), and disposal systems and access to infrastructure in the Indian context. Also included are several infographics, including a call to action, a value chain, and one PATH developed some time ago on product attributes of various menstrual hygiene products.

All the best,

Re: Menstrual health in India - Pushing the Boundaries

Dear Ms. Nancy,

In Pakistan, due to Muslim culture, women and girls do not talk of issues around MHM. Does your experience says otherwise?

In India, do the women and girls shying away from talking about MHM?

You have mentioned a number of development partners (Development Solutions Inc, PATH, WaterAid, WSSCC, and Zariya), are they working on MHM in Pakistan?

Regards,

Re: Menstrual health in India - Pushing the Boundaries

Dear Mr. Mughal,

Your post is very interesting. I have been working in MHM for the last twenty years and I have worked in some Muslim-dominated areas as well. Yes it is a taboo subject but I did not face much difficulty. I am talking about more than one states in India with diverse socio-economic conditions. We harp on the health, genito-urinary infections, cervical cancer etc and the women show keen interest since most of them are sufferers. Moreover, the adolescent girls are more forthright, clear in their demand and I suppose this will bring change. I am very interested to know what kind of work you are doing there. I will also share mine.
