Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) training

Since October 2018, Thrive Networks/East Meets West Foundation (EMWF) in Cambodia has partnered with the Commune Committee for Women and Children (CCWC)s to conduct Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) sessions to women and girls in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. To date, 1,126 women and girls have been trained on menstrual health and hygiene and also been mobilized to build hygienic latrines in their communities. This initiative is part of Thrive/EMWF’s Women-led Output Based Aids (WOBA) project, funded by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), with a focus on Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (GESI). CCWCs were first trained on MHM education by external national consultants working with Thrive/EMWF before leading bi-monthly sessions on every other Sunday observed by the consultants and Thrive/EMWF field staffs. These MHM training serves as an entry point to discuss and address women and girls’ specific hygiene and sanitation needs which are often overlooked in community-wide sanitation and hygiene programs.
