Menstrual Hygiene Day 2019: Publicity Materials


On 28 May, celebrate Menstrual Hygiene Day with WSSCC!

WSSCC works to break the silence on menstruation leaving no one behind. For WSSCC, Menstrual Hygiene Management means that those who menstruate have :

  • better school attendance and learning outcomes
  • greater mobility and opportunities
  • greater self-determination and well-being
  • a healthier and more confident adolescence.

Breaking the taboo starts with providing information – not only to those who menstruate, but also to men and boys to enable us all to talk freely about periods.

This year’s Menstrual Hygiene Day theme is “It’s Time For Action!” and the WSSCC branded publicity materials developed by WASH United are here to help you take action today.

Download, share and spread the word about menstrual hygiene on social media – and don’t forget to let us know by mentioning WSSCC and #ItsTimeForAction!

Menstrual Hygiene Management in Humanitarian Situations: The Example of Cameroon (In EN and FR)

WSSCC General

Menstrual hygiene is an integral part of a woman's health and has a lasting impact on education, livelihoods and the security of women, guaranteeing their empowerment. However, it is clear that menstrual hygiene is little or not taken into account in humanitarian response plans for refugees. As part of the WSSCC/UN Women Joint Programme on Gender, Hygiene and Sanitation, a study was conducted by the Institute for Training and Demographic Research IFORD in refugee camps in Cameroon. It investigates the difficulties that women experience during menstruation, and makes an inventory of water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure fixtures in the camps.L'hygiène menstruelle fait partie intégrante de la santé de la femme et a un impact durable sur l'éducation, les moyens de subsistance et la sécurité des femmes, garantissant leur autonomisation. Cependant, il est clair que l'hygiène menstruelle est peu ou pas prise en compte dans les plans d'intervention humanitaire pour les réfugiés. Dans le cadre du Programme conjoint WSSCC / ONU Femmes sur le genre, l'hygiène et l'assainissement, une étude a été menée par l'Institut de formation et de recherche démographique IFORD dans des camps de réfugiés au Cameroun. Il étudie les difficultés rencontrées par les femmes pendant la menstruation et dresse un inventaire des infrastructures d'eau, d'assainissement et d'hygiène dans les camps.
