In order to deepen the understanding on challenges and opportunities on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), UNICEF’s WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) team in the East Asia and Pacific Regional Office (EAPRO) undertook a comprehensive overview and analysis of the experiences of girls and women, to establish the current status of MHM programming and action across the region. This review not only focuses on the school context linked to WASH in Schools (WinS) programming, but also explores MHM in relation to out-of-school youth, at community level, in humanitarian contexts and in the workplace.
Considering various audiences, the findings are presented in separate documents, i.e.
• A regional synthesis report entitled “Supporting the Rights of Girls and Women through Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in East Asia and Pacific – Realities, Progress and Opportunities”
• An implementation guidance note with selected good practices titled “Supporting the Rights of Girls and Women through Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in East Asia and Pacific – Regional Good Practice Guidance Note”
