WSSCC Supports Indian Government Effort to Integrate Menstrual Hygiene in Key Sanitation Programme

On any given day, up to 350 million women and girls in India menstruate, yet across the country menstrual blood is considered impure. Girls and women are expected to hide all signs of menstruation, shrouding this natural, life-affirming phenomenon in secrecy, superstition and stigma. And few people talk about menstruation until menarche actually occurs. The result of this wall of silence is fear, shame, absence from school and work leading to a vicious cycle of poor hygiene practices based on inadequate information – all of which are exacerbated by poverty and inappropriate facilities for changing, washing, drying and disposal.
