WASH SDG has a podcast now! In WASH SDG voices from the field, we'll get in touch with water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) experts working in several countries in Africa and Asia. We'll talk about different themes related to WASH, and may include topics as varied as water governance, leaving open defecation behind or menstrual health and hygiene.
Menstrual Health in Times of COVID-19
In our first episode, Menstrual Health in Times of COVID-19, we discuss how COVID-19 impacted the way women in Africa and Asia manage their period. Normally, schools are the main source of reliable information and a safe place. Due to COVID-19, schools were closed, houses were packed and privacy was scarce, to not even mention the stress that comes with a pandemic. Together with two experts in the field, Andrew Samuel Kiiza (Plan International Uganda) and Pema Lhaki (NFCC, Nepal), we discussed the situation, the work that the government does and the next steps to be taken.
