This paper describes the development and pilot testing of the Menstrual Hygiene Management in Emergencies Toolkit in three camps hosting Burundian and Congolese refugees in Northwest Tanzania. Multiple methods were used to evaluate the implementation of the toolkit, which included a process and endline evaluation. Key findings included the identification of content gaps in the draft toolkit, the mapping out of a training and capacity building approaches needed for integrating menstrual hygiene management into ongoing programming, the relevancy and appropriateness of the guidance prescribed, and the potential for novel approaches to be identified by both WASH and non-WASH sector actors subsequent to sufficient training.
