MHM Lab Convenor’s Manual (English and French)


The MHM Lab’s aim is simple: to transform menstruation into a matter of pride and help women and girls stop suffering in silence. By enabling safe and hygienic menstrual management (MHM), as well as safe reuse and/or disposal of menstrual hygiene products, the Lab allows women and girls to regain control of a basic but fundamental part of their well-being.
Creating a welcoming yet efficient workshop venue where large numbers of participants can be engaged meaningfully, but within a short timeframe, is a practical necessity for any Lab event. But it’s also important to use your imagination and create a stimulating training session within a holistic, highly visual and interactive space for sharing and learning.

Given the significant progress and the ever-increasing attention to women and girls health and access to WASH, it is time to solidify these efforts and elevate ongoing national developments to the UN level. The aim is to ensure the reflection of language on issues such as menstrual health in resolutions, reports and other official documents and to use the resulting official language to feed back into national and global policy and monitoring processes. During the September session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, The Permanent Missions of Germany, Niger and Spain, WSSCC, Columbia University and others have come together to share lessons and approaches to implementing and realizing the human rights to water and sanitation for women and girls everywhere. The session will run for 1.30 hour, and will include short presentations and a facilitated discussion. Download the conference programme here.
