Importance of Menstrual Hygiene

Menstrual hygiene is important for several reasons, both for individual health and well-being as well as for broader social and economic development. Here are some of the key reasons why menstrual hygiene is important:

  1. Preventing infections: Good menstrual hygiene practices, such as using clean and sanitary menstrual products and washing hands regularly, can help prevent infections such as urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, and other reproductive tract infections.
  2. Reducing stigma and discrimination: Poor menstrual hygiene can lead to stigma and discrimination, which can affect girls’ and women’s confidence, self-esteem, and ability to participate fully in social and economic activities.
  3. Promoting gender equality: Ensuring that girls and women have access to menstrual products, facilities, and education can help promote gender equality by removing barriers to education and economic participation.
  4. Improving education outcomes: Lack of access to menstrual products and facilities can lead to school absenteeism and poor academic performance among girls, which can have long-term effects on their education and future opportunities.
  5. Supporting economic development: By ensuring that women have access to menstrual products and facilities, we can help reduce productivity losses due to menstrual-related health issues and absenteeism, leading to improved economic outcomes.
