Menstrual hygiene management is often hampered by social, cultural, and religious restrictions and stigma in India. In addition, lack of or incomplete knowledge of practicing menstrual hygiene and waste disposal leads to many health concerns. This paper describes current barriers to practicing menstrual hygiene and recommends ways in which menstrual hygiene can be improved through the use of sustainable absorbents, better waste disposal, more knowledge on hygiene practices, and the involvement of communities. This paper can be a useful reference for community health workers and school teachers for advocating menstrual hygiene and rights.
