In total, women spend around six to seven years of their lives menstruating. A key priority for women and girls is to have the necessary knowledge, facilities and cultural environment to manage menstruation hygienically, and with dignity. Yet, the importance of menstrual hygiene management is mostly neglected by development practitioners and other related sectors such as reproductive health. Despite major developments in the hygiene and sanitation sector in recent years, the menstrual requirements of women and adolescent girls have been ignored. Overcoming this gap is vital. Menstruation is normal and natural, but many women suffer and die because of widespread ignorance and shame. Hence, this study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene for adolescent girls.
