Menstrual hygiene management in Udaypur and Sindhuli districts of Nepal

Adolescent girls face significant challenges to managing their menstruation hygienically, with comfort and confidence, especially in low-income countries.

WaterAid is working with the Government of Nepal to strengthen WASH facilities in schools of Udaypur and Sindhuli Districts, and to help equip them to facilitate confident menstrual hygiene management (MHM).

This study sought to inform the development of these interventions through mixed-methods research with girls, boys, teachers and mothers.
