Menstruation management and Sanitation systems

Dear all
It was great pleasure to meet that many of you in Stockholm. I think it was a superactive and interesting SuSanA week.
I hope to see some of you soon in other meetings or online discussions throughout the year.
Before World Water Week I was invited by WSSCC to write a blog for Guardian about menstruation management and saniation system
It was published during the week and I am happy to share it with you.
In the article I call for more knowledge about how menstruation interact with sanitation system. It would be great to have some input on this topic within this group.
Please share the link so that the call on more resources will reach the ones that possess those.

all the best from sunny Stockholm in the aftermath of the World Water Week

Re: Menstruation management and Santiation systems

Hi Madeleine - great to see this in The Guardian!
I would like to read the AC Nielsen report - can you (or anyone, please!) advise how to access it?
I wish it were true that private washing facilities were available in shared toilets here in the UK - at least through this open discussion people might eventually feel more able to rinse reusables, such as cups, in public washbasins, even if we can't exactly wash ourselves.
Brilliant about marathon runner. What an example of taboo-busting.

Dear Susannah
I am happy that you liked the article in the guardian.
Yes it is really annoying that you many time cannot find washing facilities inside public toilets . Happens quite often in Sweden as well.
While trying to find the report here is a recent interesting article on this topic . in.news.yahoo.com/why-are-we-pretending-...-with-111659074.html
