Celebrating Womanhood: How better menstrual hygiene management is the path to better health, dignity and business

There are many candidates for the title of “last taboo,” but in 2013, menstruation has one of the strongest claims on it. The power of this taboo has meant that even in the field of WASH, menstruation has remained imprisoned by silence, stigma and neglect.

Hommage à la femme: Comment une meilleure gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle conduit à une meilleure santé, plus de dignité et d’épanouissement professionnel

On compte de nombreux candidats au titre d'« ultime tabou », mais en 2013, les menstruations sont particulièrement bien placées pour prétendre à ce titre. Ce tabou est si fort que même dans le domaine WASH, les menstruations sont restées prisonnières du silence, de la stigmatisation
et d'un profond désintérêt.

Hommage à la femme : la gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle - Briser le silence

L'hygiène menstruelle reste un sujet tabou, négligé dans la santé, l'éducation et la qualité de vie des adolescentes et des femmes. Même des secteurs tels que l'eau et l'assainissement, qui se préoccupent quotidiennement de questions innommables comme les excréments, ignorent la nécessité pour les filles et les femmes de disposer d'espaces sûrs où elles seraient capables de gérer leur hygiène menstruelle et de systèmes permettant d'éliminer sans risque les serviettes utilisées pour absorber le sang menstruel.

Celebrating Womanhood: Menstrual Hygiene Management - Break the Silence

Menstrual hygiene is still a taboo subject, neglected in adolescent girl’s and women’s health, education and quality of life. Even sectors such as water and sanitation, which routinely deal with unmentionables such as excreta, ignore girl’s and women’s need for safe spaces to manage menstrual hygiene and mechanisms for safe disposal of materials used to absorb menstrual blood.

Equity and inclusion in South Asia

This report is a consolidated analysis of six case studies from five South Asian countries that provide deeper insights into the equity and inclusion issues related to providing sanitation services. This study aims to inform discussions at SACOSAN V and contribute to the formulation of concrete commitments targeting poor, marginalised and vulnerable communities in sanitation development policies and programmes. We are very grateful to Water Supply Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) for having the trust in FANSA and providing the funding support that enabled this study.

We can't wait: we should work together to tackle sanitation for women’s health

The report, We Can’t Wait, was presented on the 19th November 2013 at a UN event in New York which celebrates recognition of the first official World Toilet Day. The day served to remind the world that over 2.5 billion people lack access to an adequate toilet, with devastating consequences in particular for the well-being, health, education and empowerment of women and girls worldwide.
