Dear Mintje


Basing on the names used in the report, perhaps on the list Linda Lilian Semana would suffice.


Thanks

Dear Ms. Mintje,

The report has been nicely laid out, with good clarity, filled with very useful information, and with rational sub-headings.

The report, however, should have given photographs of Dr. Katrin Dauenhauer, Mintje Büürma, Jan Schlenk, on the last page.


Kind regards,

Dear Mr. Daniel,

On this link: www.helvetas.org/news_blog/publication/water___sanitation.cfm
you will find Helvetas Behavior Change Manual. This is a good 35pp document, which in addition, gives the basics of behaviour change.

I trust, you will find the publication interesting.

Re: Exploring how to address on-going taboos and silence around MHM for girls in school

Dear Daniel,

A recent (Jan 2017) publication by UN Women and WSSCC titled Menstrual hygiene management: the experience of nomadic and sedentary populations in Niger, available at wsscc.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Men...lations-in-Niger.pdf, says:

If better informed, women and girls can fully participate in society and the economy and lead active lives in school, work and leisure. This means that MHM must be clearly articulated in public policies and national strategies with associated budgets and monitoring systems. The capacity to implement such policies is as essential as the services that women and girls can use with total confidence.

This shows that it is the advocacy that is required, if menstrual hygiene management is to be made effective. The advocacy has to be effective, as half-baked advocacy that does not directly target the population, which is intended to be targetted, will not be effective, and will only be a waste of time and money.

We as well mobilize the religious organizations youths as agents of social transformation against harmful practices, restrictions and taboos surrounding menstruation and menstrual hygiene management
