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.
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.
This literature review examines the determinants and impacts of menstrual hygiene management (MHM), and effective interventions for improving MHM globally and in the Pacific.
Background: Unhygienic and ineffective menstrual hygiene management has been documented across low resource contexts and linked to negative consequences for women and girls.
This booklet is the ninth in a series of publications that address key themes of UNESCO’s work in HIV and health education. It is one of several contributions to school-based health promotion that UNESCO has produced to complement our work in HIV and sexuality education.
