Menstrual Hygiene Webinar Series – recordings and post-webinar discussions

Menstrual Hygiene webinar series

There is a growing interest in the development sector on menstrual hygiene (MH), and more organisations are working on this issue. WASH United, Simavi, World Vision and GIZ are launching a webinar series focusing on menstrual hygiene as an activity under the MH Alliance. This five-part, weekly webinar series will launch the week of 28 May (Menstrual Hygiene Day), with a different topic each week. This series aims to touch on many of the complex aspects of MH, including evidence, knowledge, menstrual products, infrastructure and policy. Below is a summary of the objectives, deliverables, outline and topics for these webinars:

Overall objective: To document and promote learning and connection between menstrual hygiene practitioners and interested professionals from different sectors, with a specific aim to refine and advance the global MH agenda. More specifically, we hope to
● Building a global MH movement
● Creating a community of practice on MH
● Providing a platform for sharing and learning on MH
● Giving NGOs in the global south a platform to share and learn

Deliverables: After each webinar, a one-page learning document will be produced noting key points discussed, questions for further discussion, resources highlighted, and action items identified. Learning and exchange will be consolidated and shared, such as in upcoming forums like the High-level Political Forum, as well via MH Day website and newsletter.

Outline: Each 60 minute webinar will follow roughly the same outline:
• Introduction and welcome (5 minutes)
• Thematic presenter (10 minutes)
• Topic presenter 1 (10 minutes)
• Topic presenter 2 (10 minutes)
• Discussant reflections (5 minutes)
• Guided group discussion around core question (20)

The webinar will take place every Thursday starting on 31 May 2018. It is free-of-charge and open to all interested professionals and individuals from all sectors. These webinars will be recorded and posted online for future access.
Post-webinar discussion will take place on the SuSanA platform.

Topics:
• Webinar 1: Menstrual hygiene: the issue, evidence and gaps
• Webinar 2: Solutions to improve knowledge, practices and attitude
• Webinar 3: Creating access to menstrual products
• Webinar 4: Infrastructure solutions for MH
• Webinar 5: Advocating for MH

Re: Menstrual Hygiene Webinar Series – recordings and post-webinar discussions

I am excited about this topic and would participate to learn more. It is important to build a strong movement for MH and a platform for learning and sharing. It is by so doing that we would have a strong voice to compel governments to pay attention to the difficulty of girls during that stage in life. Many young girls drop out of school or stay away from lessons due to the difficulty they encounter during that period of the month. A lot more is required of all duty bearers to help young girls in this critical stage. I would also like to know if there are resources for making simple sanitary towels. I found some information on the internet but not so detailed.

Re: Menstrual Hygiene Webinar Series – recordings and post-webinar discussions

Hi all.
I am quite happy to see so many people interested in taking Menstrual Hygiene forward. In Tamil Nadu in India we have started creating a community cadre or community level resource persons who would take Menstrual Hygiene forward. In a training programme organized by community graduation centre of Tamil Nadu State Rural Livelihood Mission and NGO - Karupa Institute of Development Initiatives, we have trying to train women and address issues with respect to MH and link it up to the different government schemes and departments say Education, Health, Rural Development etc.
Field experiences from the community resource persons are highly satisfying.

Looking forward to the post-webinar discussion!

We didn't have any presentations this time, so there are no PDFs to share.
As with other webinars, a 1-2 page briefing from each webinar summarising key learnings will be drafted . These will be published all together at the end of the webinar series, as each webinar will build on the last.
You can find an album of all the previous webinar recordings following this link .


WASH United, GIZ, World Vision and Simavi will also be hosting a side event at the upcoming UNC Water and Health Conference in October 2018. More information will be shared about that when available.
