School Menstrual Hygiene Management in Malawi: More than Toilets

This study answers a call from WaterAid (2009) for ‘evidence from the field’ that provides data on menstrual hygiene management (MHM) for school age girls in Malawi. Participatory group workshops, together with a questionnaire, semi-structured interviews, a literature review and observations are here presented to WaterAid with a view to determining one or several recommendations for improved MHM in Malawian schools.
