MHM is all set to organise consultative workshop on MenstruAction
Menstrual Health Management (MHM) Alliance is going to hold a major consultative workshop on Menstrual Health Management on Tuesday.
The consultative workshop will bring together some 350 leading experts, policymakers, practitioners, researchers, adolescent and youth representatives and media to discuss how to best design and deliver future Menstrual Health Management.
Women and girls in Nepal, and in many other countries, face a range of challenges when menstruating. These can range from a lack of clean, safe and gender-segregated toilets to feelings of shame and embarrassment. In Nepal there is now increasing interest in addressing the menstrual health barriers faced by women and girls. The problem of “period poverty” is prevalent more in some communities, low-income groups and school girls.
This consultative workshop on MHM will follow and build upon the first national conference on Adolescent Health and Development that was held in Nepal in 2016, and will provide a platform for policy makers, practitioners and researchers to share their latest ideas and innovations on MHM throughout Nepal.
The programme is being held with the technical support of GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
