Menstrual Hygiene Management has been noted as a challenge worldwide where women and girls are deprived of both the materials and support required to manage the natural flow. According to a joint study in 2013 carried out by SNV-Netherlands Development Organization and IRC-International Water and Sanitation Center on menstrual management in Uganda, women and girls especially in rural settings and in particular girls in schools suffer mostly from stigma and lack of services and facilities to help them cope with the challenges of menstruation. It is in this regard and also in the quest for establishing information resources that the 2014 National Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) conference is being organized.

The conference which is being spearheaded by different stakeholders with interest in menstrual hygiene management aims to champion the theme “Break the Silence: Join the Discourse on Menstrual Management” (please see: mhmconference2014.wordpress.com/) which is in line with the goal of International Menstrual Hygiene Day of creating awareness regarding menstrual hygiene management and enabling women and girls reach their full potential.
