Nepal’s Menstrual Movement – The topic MHM has gained considerable momentum in Nepal since the earthquake in 2015. The fantastic work of development initiatives and activists of the MHM Practitioner Alliance Nepal is documented in the report ‘Nepal’s Menstrual Movement’. It has been launched on MH Day 2019 parallel in Berlin and Kathmandu and is available for download here.
This report is not meant as a comprehensive summary of all the work being done in the field of MHM—that would not be possible within the scope of a report of this length—but it does summarise and give examples of some of the MHM initiatives being undertaken at this particular point in time, with a view to both documenting these efforts so far and inspiring further MHM momentum, both in Nepal and elsewhere.
The experiences and efforts of just a few of the policy makers, researchers, educationists, development partners, technologists and innovators, young volunteers and activists working in this field are documented in this report, largely in their own words. The opinions expressed are their own, not necessarily those of GIZ’s, although all are united in the belief that every girl deserves access to better health, wellbeing and empowerment, and that ensuring better menstrual health and hygiene management is one way of achieving this.
