Globally 52% of the female population is of reproductive age, meaning approximately 1.9 billion women and adolescent girls menstruate each month for between two and seven days.
A first examination of the MHM global landscape: literature, academic studies, main actors, and debates, by the Sector Programme Sustainable Sanitation of the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was discussed and made more comprehensive through discussions with members of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) working group 7 “Sustainable WASH in institutions and gender equality” and feedback from the authors. This led to a comprehensive link collection that shall serve all SuSanA partners and beyond as an overview of important information on MHM.
Please take into account that this source is not exhaustive and thus only contains files that were pre-selected and in this initiative driven by the Sector Programme Sustainable Sanitation of GIZ. An updated version (2020) is available under the link below.
