Brief: Mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 and menstrual health and hygiene. UNICEF, April 2020.

A summary of essential considerations to ensure continuation of MHH during the pandemic:

  1. Ensure MHH supplies and WASH facilities are in place for healthcare workers and patients.
  2. Mitigate the impact of lack of access to menstrual materials and WASH facilities by providing menstrual materials in NFI and food assistance for girls and women with limited movement or in camps or institutions.
  3. Provide basic WASH facilities and services in communities, camps, and institutional settings.
