This section hosts guidelines, manuals and toolkits to strengthen public health practice.
This guidance was developed for UNICEF WASH, Education, Health, and Gender specialists or focal points in-country offices who are working with their partners to develop programs related to menstrual health and hygiene (MHH). In recognition of the inherently broad programming considerations of MHH, this guidance is also aimed at cross-cutting clusters of Communications for Development, Adolescent Development and Participation, and Disability. While it is written primarily for UNICEF staff members, the guide can be useful to the broader program implementers from other agencies who are working to advance menstrual health and hygiene at a national and sub-national level.
This document is guided by the priorities laid out in UNICEF’s Strategy for WASH 2016- 2030, Strategic Plan 2018-2021, and Gender Action Plan 2018-2021, and is intended to advance the realization of the targets contained therein. As such, it focuses on the process of designing and supporting programs from the vantage point of UNICEF, rather than detailed technical notes and descriptions of menstrual health and hygiene programs.
