Menstrual hygiene matters: A resource for improving menstrual hygiene around the world


This SHARE-funded manual aims to address the knowledge gaps related to menstrual hygiene, and help break down the taboos which prevent women and girls from talking openly about the subject. The manual brings together examples of good menstrual hygiene practice from around the world, while providing guidance on building competence and confidence to break the silence surrounding the issue. It also encourages increased engagement in advocacy on menstrual hygiene. The resource is comprised of nine modules and toolkits covering key aspects of menstrual hygiene in different settings, including communities, schools and emergencies. It is available in low- and high-resolution versions, and individual sections can also be downloaded separately.
