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.

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.
