In 2006, UNICEF Nepal developed the school-led total sanitation approach which contributed to school and community sanitation. This approach has been replicated and implemented in many countries in Asia and Africa. The programme aims to provide a safe and healthy environment in schools so that all students can fully benefit. from their education experience. The WinS is based on a child-rights approach that recognizes all children have the right to have access to safe drinking water, basic sanitation facilities, hand washing facilities (with soap) and are provided with the knowledge and skills that promote lifelong health and safe hygiene practices.
Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) for school girls has long been a neglected issue in low income countries however there is increasing recognition that it should be included in research, programming, education and health policies. Women and girls continue to face many challenges due to their gender and school attending girls often struggle to manage their menstruation hygiene in schools. Research has shown that many girls experience shame, fear, confusion, teasing and lack of accurate information, advice and support with regards to their menstruation. This results in many girls being unable to confidently and effectively manage their menstruation due to these factors, as well as prevailing negative sociocultural restrictions and practical and logistical reasons including; shortage of soap and water, sanitary products, sanitation and waste disposal facilities in school environments4. These barriers in turn can impact girls’ learning and education opportunities and undermines gender equality and empowerment. The school setting is an ideal intervention setting for providing information and the impetuous for change opportunities and the cultural and structural elements of this issue are increasingly being recognised internationally, nationally and locally; and institutions, providers and relevant stakeholders are beginning to address these barriers.
