Description:
Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are based on the right and the ability of all individuals to decide over their own bodies, and to live healthy and productive lives. Addressing SRHR is thus key to ensuring sustainable development. Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is part of the overall efforts within SRHR. MHM has an impact on development as it has implications on the life of girls and women related to health, education, work, mobility and security. This guide gives a brief overview of why menstruation matters and how to consider menstrual hygiene management (MHM) in development and humanitarian projects and programmes, as well as within national and international policy processes.
