Achievement reported for commitment "Standards for ensuring disabled friendly toilets and MHM"

Active steps have been taken to address MHM through various government programs including SBSV with focus on providing MHM products, infrastructure and also to bring behavior change and awareness amongst men and women. Govt program Sabla and now the Swachh Vidyalaya program are focusing on increasing awareness and solving other issues related to MHM. Despite this, there seems to be lot of discrepancy with respect to data on school toilets and also with respect to usage, functionality.
