The 5th Annual Virtual Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools (WinS) Conference will focus on the many ways that girls’ voices are being captured and channeled into action on MHM in schools and in their lives more broadly. The evidence base on the MHM barriers girls face in schools in low-income contexts is building, with increasing advocacy, programming and research aimed at understanding the most effective interventions for addressing the WASH-related challenges facing menstruating girls and female teachers in schools.
This year’s conference aims to showcase initiatives that are translating girls’ expressed needs into actionable programming or strategic shifts in education and WASH programs and policies, including indicators to capture measureable change, and the engagement of teachers and government actors.
Submissions from those working within the education, gender, and sexual and reproductive health sectors are encouraged.
