Menstrual Hygiene Management - Lesson Plan (LDC)

This lesson uses a role play activity to introduce the challenges that many women and girls have in managing their menstrual hygiene, and the impacts on their health and education. Participants will identify solutions to meet the menstrual hygiene needs of women and girls at home and in school. This can be a sensitive topic to address, especially for traditional cultures or religions where menstruation is a taboo topic and with a mixed group of male and female participants. The trainer needs to be professional and confident when discussing menstrual hygiene management to help make the environment comfortable and respectful for men and women.
