Menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) is far more than dealing with periods and access to safe hygiene. It is the key to unlock positive outcomes across the lifecycle of females and those who menstruate, leading at the same time to a positive social and economic development.
The lack of highlighting menstrual health and hygiene under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the missing tangible indicators challenge the implementation of MHH programming. Nonetheless, evidence proves that investments in cross-sectoral MHH programming positively affect several aspects of the lives of women, girls, and those who menstruate.
Population Services International (PSI)-Europe and the BMZ programme Sanitation for Millions invite you to this webinar to discuss the importance of MHH in achieving gender equality and the SDGs. Alongside the presentation of outcomes and learnings of their programmes in Ethiopia and Pakistan, the goal is to acknowledge the need of resources to enforce MHH as an integral part of programming and impact enhancement in low- and middle-income countries.
Investing in MHH is an investment in women empowerment, gender equality, education, and social development. Hence, addressing MHH is a prerequisite to achieve effective and sustainable feminist development cooperation.
