Menstrual Hygiene Webinar Series 2018



There is a growing interest in the development sector on menstrual hygiene (MH), and more organisations are working on this issue. WASH United, Simavi, World Vision and GIZ launched a webinar series focusing on menstrual hygiene as an activity under the MH Alliance. This five-part, weekly webinar series launched the week of 28 May (Menstrual Hygiene Day), with a different topic each week: 

Each webinar provided an overview and shared good practices and recommendations. This series aims to touch on many of the complex aspects of MH, including evidence, knowledge, menstrual products, infrastructure and policy.

The overall objective was to document and promote learning and connection between menstrual hygiene practitioners and interested professionals from different sectors, with a specific aim to refine and advance the global MH agenda.
