Book description
WASH in Schools fosters social inlcusion and individual self-respect by offering an alternative to the stigma and marginalisation associated with hygiene issues. In recognition of the positive impact on girls' school attendance, initiatives around the world are addressing adolescent girls' menstrual hygiene management needs through WinS programming. Columbia University and UNICEF co-hosted a Virtual Conference on the Menstrual Hygiene Management in Schools on 27 Sept. 2012. It was attended by more than 200 online participants and WASH and MHM experts, global health and education experts and UNICEF CO. Through online (WebEx) presentation 13 UNICEF countries shared their experience. The conference agenda insluded three sessions of presentation: 1) exploring the MHM barriers faced by girls, 2) approaches to addressing MHM for girls; and 3) MHM in humanitarian emergencies. As a result the key recommendation that current MHM practices have been documented and the barriers girls face in various contexts; 2) develop guidlenies for integration of minimum MHM package into existing WinS programmes; and 3) engage with national governments from the very beginning when initiating MHM-related activities.
