Menstruation is a complex issue that involves not just the management of the menstrual period but the need to address societal beliefs and taboos surrounding the issue. This edition of Waterlines, coordinated with the help of UNICEF, covers steps to improve women’s menstrual management in their everyday lives and in humanitarian situations; and has a special focus on girls’ menstrual management. When girls reach menstruation age (menarche) they face additional barriers to getting a quality education. Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools programs throughout the developing world help ensure that schools provide a healthy environment for children and that student’s benefit fully from their education experience. What kind of challenges do female students and teachers face when they menstruate? Can WASH in Schools programmes help female teachers and students to stay at school? What kind of MHM tools and facilities are available and needed to empower girls to stay in schools with adequate privacy? How can education, gender and WASH professionals help to design and implement programs with a stronger MHM focus? How can we effectively mainstream MHM in to emergency and development assistance programmes?
