Abstract Share this page

Inadequate water and sanitation facilities pose a major impediment to school-going girls during menstruation, compromising their ability to maintain proper hygiene and privacy. A growing focus on menstrual hygiene management (MHM) from nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and other international agencies now highlights the profound impact of this problem on school-aged girls and provides the basis for a much needed research, programming, and policy agenda.
