WaterAid Ghana conducted a study to guide its implementation of a Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Programme in its areas of operation. The study explored existing MHM practices, identifying the endogenous, socio-cultural beliefs, behaviours and practices related to Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and focussed on the school environment. 319 pupils from 15 schools and 333 households at the community level were engaged across eight Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies. This paper presents some of the key findings of the study.
