The issue of Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH) is a critical aspect of the well-being and empowerment of women and adolescent girls worldwide. It's alarming to realize that, on any given day, over 300 million women across the globe are menstruating, and approximately 500 million of them lack access to menstrual products and proper facilities for menstrual hygiene management (MHM).
To address this challenge, it's essential to understand what menstrual hygiene management entails, as defined by the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme in 2012:
"Women and adolescent girls are using a clean menstrual management material to absorb or collect menstrual blood, that can be changed in privacy as often as necessary, using soap and water for washing the body as required, and having access to safe and convenient facilities to dispose of used menstrual management materials. They understand the basic facts linked to the menstrual cycle and how to manage it with dignity and without discomfort or fear."
Improving menstrual hygiene and providing affordable menstrual materials can have profound positive effects. It can enhance girls' and women's access to education, opening doors to better job opportunities, promotions, and entrepreneurship. This, in turn, unleashes their potential contributions to the economy rather than keeping them at home.
Consider the following consequences when menstrual hygiene isn't adequately addressed:
Educational Barriers: Girls who drop out of school due to menstruation face limited employment opportunities, often marry early, and start families, further diminishing their earning potential.
Economic Impact: Women who lack female-friendly sanitation facilities at work lose wages when they miss workdays during menstruation, and they may be viewed as unreliable workers, limiting their opportunities for career advancement.
Financial Constraints: Many girls and women can't access adequate menstrual products due to financial constraints or limited market availability, perpetuating the cycle of inadequate menstrual hygiene management.
It's clear that addressing menstrual health and hygiene isn't just a matter of health; it's a matter of gender equality, economic empowerment, and social justice. Efforts to provide access to affordable and safe menstrual materials and facilities are crucial for advancing the rights and well-being of women and girls worldwide. It's a step toward ensuring they can manage their menstruation with dignity, without discomfort or fear, and reach their full potential in society.
