Menstrual Hygiene Management

Menstrual hygiene management is an issue which has far reaching implications  for hygiene, education and gender in developing countries.

This fact sheet has been put together to provide background information and advice on what to do about the risk of spread of infection during menstruation.  Although poor sanitation is correlated with absenteeism and drop-out of girls in developing countries, efforts in school sanitation to address this issue have ignored menstrual management in latrine design and construction.

This fact sheet is intended to provide the basic information which can be used for education of girls and others on the basics of menstrual hygiene management
