Problem

Two billion women and girls around the world are of menstruating age. At least 500 million women and girls globally lack adequate facilities for menstrual hygiene management. Menstrual health encompasses Menstrual Health Management (MHM) and the broader systemic factors that link menstruation with health, well-being, gender, education, equity, empowerment and rights; yet — often because of its cross-sectoral nature — menstrual health is rarely addressed in major funding, research or policy agendas. Poor menstrual hygiene is in many developing countries caused by lack of access to proper menstrual products and information. There are several negative side effects connected to poor menstrual hygiene such as vaginal infections, school dropouts and inequality between genders. This problem not only affects individuals but entire societies. The girl is affected physically due to the risk of getting infections which leads to increased healthcare cost. She is furthermore excluded from attending school and/or work during her period which again affects her education level and subsequent her future income generating possibilities. Overall it affects development and the potential for economic growth within the society.
