Article: Long-running advocacy in Nepal to realize menstrual health and hygiene for all

I'd like to bring to your attention an Interview conducted with Mr Gunaraj Shrestha,the National Convener of Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management Partners’ Alliance (MHMPA) in Nepal. 

The title of the article is:  Long-running advocacy in Nepal to realize menstrual health and hygiene for all   

"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."
