The 8th Annual Virtual Conference on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Schools provides an opportunity to share the latest research and programming from around the world. The virtual conference is expected to bring together online over 1,000 participants from around the world.

This year’s theme, Innovation in MHM: Putting Girls at the Center, aims to highlight national examples of programs that found new ways to identify and address barriers to safe and dignified MHM for girls in schools. Apart from innovations in products, services and facilities, this also includes novel, inclusive ways to end menstrual stigma and empower girls with knowledge and skills to manage their menstruation.

Join Population Services International, PSI-Europe, The Case for Her and The Global Menstrual Collective for an interactive webinar on why funders and practitioners should invest in a cross-sectoral approach to addressing menstrual health. Through three case studies, our panelists will share best practices and lessons learned by exploring the impact and effectiveness of these programs. The presentations will be followed by a guided discussion with panel members and a Q&A session.
