Re: Blog: Addressing menstrual health in Bangladesh

Thanks you Alice,
I found this piece to be very informative and thought-provoking.  The author does an excellent job of bringing out the impact of focusing on blood at the cost of neglecting the range of effects of menstruation on everyday life. It is so important to get the language and the messaging right when dealing with taboo topics such as menstruation.
