WASH in the context of maternal health and menstrual hygiene (research project by Sandec, Switzerland and others)

Dear all,

Sandec/Eawag contributes also to the topic of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in an
interdisciplinary two-year (2014-2016) research project, which combines social anthropology and gender studies with sanitary engineering. We aim to provide solid information about users’ needs for WASH infrastructure in public health care facilities in Uganda and India. The project focus is to deepen our understanding on how to respond to women’s special needs during special times (menstruation, pregnancy, and childbirth). The expected research outcomes are a WASH indicators checklist for health care facilities, supplemented with a gender perspective, allowing for the assessment of the infrastructure, as well as providing practical guidance on necessary improvements. The data will provide evidence for possible interventions that are needs-based, technically appropriate and socially acceptable.
