WASH Community Webinar: Focus on Education and Menstrual Hygiene

23 July 2019

Part of the focus of the 2019 Menstrual Hygiene Day was to catalyse advocacy, accountability and actions on menstrual hygiene education, to ensure that no girl is left behind because of her period. 

On Wednesday, 27 June, we hosted a webinar focusing on education and menstrual health and hygiene. You can listen the full webinar recording below, and continue to scroll down for links to presentations and other related resources. 

During this webinar, we heard an update from Ina Jurga from WASH United on the impact of Menstrual Hygiene Day 2019 and the status of menstrual hygiene education that they are tracking. We then heard two examples from some of World Vision's field programmes.
