On December 11 2018, the MHM Practitioners’ Alliance Nepal, in collaboration with the Federal Government of Germany through the GIZ coordinated ‘Support to the Health Sector Programme (S2HSP)’, hosted a national workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The workshop ‘MenstruAction. No time to rest: Ensuring every girl can thrive on her period’, built upon the first national conference on adolescent health and development ’my Health. my Rights. our Future’, held in Nepal in 2016. It reflected on the achievements by the MHM Practitioners’ Alliance Nepal and asked how the different organisations in the alliance can better work together to improve menstrual health management in Nepal and globally. It brought together Nepal’s leading policymakers, practitioners, researchers, creators, private sector actors , adolescents, youth and the media. There were discussions on how to advance the agenda and what it will take to design and deliver effective menstrual health management and development packages, as a shared aspiration and responsibility for the future.
