MENSTRUAL HYGIENE MANAGEMENT IN EMERGENCIES Perspectives and Practices from the Arab Region

The main objective of this desk research was to look at UNFPA menstrual hygiene management (MHM) in emergency interventions beyond procurement and distribution of dignity kits and how to further strengthen this component across UNFPA sexual and reproductive health, youth, and gender-based violence interventions. The consultations targeted country offices in the region responding to the needs of internally displaced persons and/or refugees, notably Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
