An Integrated Approach to Menstrual Hygiene Management: Awareness sessions and cash assistance for women and girls affected by crisis in Lebanon

28 May 2023 — By UNFPA

In 2022, UNFPA Lebanon worked with local partners to launch an integrated cash and awareness for menstrual hygiene management (MHM) initiative as a way to tackle the growing issue of period poverty amidst the country’s economic crisis. Through the pilot, over 2,600 vulnerable women and girls of reproductive age received cash assistance intended to cover the purchase of monthly menstrual products after attending awareness sessions on menstruation and menstrual hygiene. These awareness sessions aimed to address social stigmas and myths that often shroud the limited education on menstruation in the country, with the intention of empowering and equipping women and girls to manage their menstruation with confidence and dignity.
