Menstruation is clouded in taboos and misconceptions that are socially and culturally accepted. The fact that these taboos are deep-rooted in social and cultural beliefs of specific regions lead to the perpetuation of them over time. Addressing them is a sensitive issue and often poses a challenge to trainers and practitioners of menstrual hygiene management.
Create a product to encourage active thinking and action amongst the girls to question and find solutions on their own to the issues faced by them.
Devise the implementation model for the product.
Create a Sustainability Plan for the product: The Action ensures that girls are willing to continue to spread the shift in knowledge and attitudes they attain through the MHMEG training. This should support scale up of the product.
