The main objective of the study was to determine the influence of Menstrual Hygiene Management on school absenteeism of adolescent girls in 10 primary schools in Lira municipality.
Background: Many adolescent girls in low-income and middle-income countries lack appropriate facilities and support in school to manage menstruation. Little research has been conducted on how menstruation affects school absence.
Managing menstruation effectively and with dignity can be challenging for girls and women in low and middle-income countries. Currently there is limited research on menstrual hygiene management (MHM) in the Pacific region.
The Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) toolkit is a practical guide providing information on MHM at schools. The toolkit together with the accompanying MHM National Guidelines were developed by the MHM Thematic Working Group under the lead of the Ministry of General Education (MoGE).
The purpose of these guidelines is to make an evidence-based Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) resource available that gives guidance on MHM programming to stakeholders involved in providing a safe and appropriate school environment through improvements in WASH infrastructure and services.
The global demands for greater understanding of the challenges menstruating school girls face and the associated potential risks and consequences are growing.
This Guide supports organizations working on MHM to encourage all girls and women to adopt safer menstrual hygiene practices. It also demonstrates how to work with communities and implement concrete actions for effective menstrual management.
