This booklet is the ninth in a series of publications that address key themes of UNESCO’s work in HIV and health education. It is one of several contributions to school-based health promotion that UNESCO has produced to complement our work in HIV and sexuality education. The booklet lays out the context and rationale for education sector involvement, the characteristics of good quality puberty education and menstrual hygiene management, as well as key issues for Programme development, implementation and sustainability.
Every year a new cohort of learners reaches puberty. Yet, despite the urgent and recurring need, there is little systematic and comprehensive guidance on this vital subject for the education sector. UNESCO and partners have teamed up to fill this gap by developing the next volume in the UNESCO series on Good Policy and Practice in Health Education. This volume is designed to articulate a rationale for the education sector to improve school health by addressing puberty education and menstrual hygiene management; to describe good policies and practices from different global contexts; and to provide clear action steps for administrators, practitioners and advocates to take on these issues in their education sector
