About the COVID-19 AND MHM intervention
With support from United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Women for change (WFC) conducted an awareness on Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) as an essential aspect of hygiene for women and adolescent girls between menarche and menopause during the difficult moment of the pandemic in Kapuri, Luri county. Despite being an important issue concerning women and girls in the menstruating age group MHM is often overlooked during or post-disaster responses. Further, there is limited evidence of menstrual hygiene management in humanitarian settings.
Objectives of the intervention:
WFC Sensitized about 200 households on menstrual hygiene management and Distributed Dignity kits to adolescent girls since Menstruation necessitates the availability of material resources to absorb or collect menstrual blood, facilitate personal hygiene and dispose of waste, ideally with adequate privacy during the struggling times of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
