Menstrual hygiene matters

Dear Colleagues,

There is a new toolkit out on Menstrual Hygiene Management. It covers key aspects of menstrual hygiene in different settings such as communities and emergencies. You can download all the modules here: www.wateraid.org/uk/what_we_do/how_we_wo..._inclusion/10745.asp

Here is some more information.

++++++
Menstrual hygiene matters is an essential resource for improving menstrual hygiene for women and girls in lower and middle-income countries.
Nine modules and toolkits cover key aspects of menstrual hygiene in different settings, including communities, schools and emergencies.

This comprehensive resource:
o Brings together examples of good menstrual hygiene practice from around the world
o Provides guidance on building competence and confidence to break the silence surrounding the issue
o Encourages increased engagement in advocacy on menstrual hygiene

In her foreword, Catarina De Albuquerque, UN Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, states:

This resource brings together, for the first time, accurate, straightforward, non-judgmental knowledge and practice on menstrual hygiene programming from around the world to encourage the development of comprehensive and context specific approaches to menstrual hygiene.


++++++

It is very helpful when organizations make such toolkits accessible to everyone!

Best regards,

Doreen
