A comprehensive guide for why and how to invest in menstrual health and hygiene 

Ensuring good and safe menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) contributes to the overall health and well-being of women and girls around the world, and yet roughly 500 million women and girls face limitations when it comes to managing their menstruation. From healthier populations to better educational outcomes, the benefits of investing in MHH are far-reaching, but despite an increased interest in MHH in recent years, the available funding in this space still does not match the current needs. 

The brand new report Making the Case for Investing in Menstrual Health and Hygiene is a comprehensive guide - developed in consultation with funders, government leaders, advocates and implementing partners - for both why and how you can invest in MHH for the economic, educational and health benefits of women, girls and all people who menstruate in low- and middle-income countries around the world.

Read the report to explore: 

  • How to improve coordination between stakeholders 
  • Where to focus funding for strategic and effective programming 
  • Opportunities to increase the evidence base and track progress

We encourage you to read the report and share how your institution or organization can use its key recommendations at the community, organizational, national, and global levels to effectively catalyze funding for MHH, using this social media toolkit.
