"In health, we need to mainstream menstrual health and hygiene into all health-related plans and programmes, as it is still not a priority in the WASH sector. We also need investment in building menstruation-friendly toilets in all the schools and public offices. In Nepal, only 15% of women have access to sanitary pads, and 85% of women rely on used clothes. This unhygienic use of clothes without access to clean water can have a long-term impact on the health of women and girls. So, the government should invest in producing biodegradable and reusable sanitary pads."
