CSO Traffic Light Paper scores and evidence, Afghanistan, 2016

Achievement reported for commitment "Initiatives to address the MHM needs of women and girls"

MHM has been the focus of School WASH programme in Afghanistan. . MOE with support of UNICEF has developed guidelines on MHM  in effect  from 2011. It is translated into local languages and widely implemented and scaling  up in schools and education center is currently  in progress together with hardware implementation ( Incinerator and wash room facilities) . WASH with special attention to MHM has become essential component of new School package. The draft National Communication Strategy of MOPH  also promotes behaviour analysis and positive behaviour on menstrual hygiene. According to MOE after 2013 implementation of MHM guidelines was scaled up in schools . MOE is still working on the process of incorporating MHM into the School WASH programme and school curriculum. . Also an evaluation of MHM intervention in schools was carried out in 2013 (MOE/UNICEF) which resulted in identification of key challenges that MHM intervention faced in schools . UNICEF and MOE at the end of 2015, has started to conduct a research  to further explore the issues around MHM and school attendance of girls. This formative research will cover 12 schools of 6 provinces to identify main barriers that the adolescent girls face during menstruation at school. This will include facts about the type of facilities and information needed to keep girls in school and for the school to become an inclusive environment where girls can develop their capacity and create opportunities for their future. This study will use rigorous qualitative research methods with strong support from the Emory University in the US.
