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.
