Menstrual Hygiene Management in Emergencies Toolkit
Published on 23/10/2017
Menstruation is difficult to manage in emergencies; privacy, sanitation facilities, access to hygiene materials are among some of the challenges women and girls face. We funded Columbia University and the International Rescue Committee to carry out research into women and girls priority menstrual hygiene needs in order to develop a toolkit to guide humanitarian response.
The Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Emergencies Toolkit is a multi-sectoral resource that will guide humanitarian responders on how to support women and girls with menstruation in emergencies. This toolkit will enable women and girls to manage menstruation safely, with privacy and dignity. The Toolkit was launched at a ‘launch & learn’ event in London on 23 October 2017.
The Toolkit as well as all infographics are also available in our Publications Portal.
