Menstrual Hygiene Management is fundamental to the dignity and wellbeing of girls. Menstrual hygiene education, availability of water and toilets, safe sanitation facilities with access to sanitary products, are important factors enabling girls to attend school and lead a healthy life, not interrupted by menstruation.
This guidance booklet is an education resource to help girls to manage, with confidence, their critical menstruation period. It aims to arm girls with knowledge and skills for safe management of menstruation, help them break taboos and silence surrounding the issue, and feel comfortable seeking help from others (including boys and men), as may be required. It provides answers and clarifications to questions that young girls have about their body, hygiene requirements, dietary needs.
A list of resources and discussion forums is provided for any additional information that may be required for self study and for connecting with young girls across the world.
