Menstrual Hygiene Day 2020: Innovative finance at the service of Menstrual Hygiene Management

May 28, 2020
Half of the world's population experiences menstruation, yet, for many, it still brings about shame, medical issues, and even influences school performance! In honour of Menstrual Hygiene day, KOIS is highlighting the impact Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) interventions can have.

In this infographic, you can follow along a young girl named Asha living in a Sub-Saharan African village. As she experiences menstruation in her community, we look at the impact MHM interventions can have on her life.

Looking ahead, KOIS is working with the French Development Agency and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to structure a Development Impact Bond (DIB) to sponsor these interventions in Ethiopia and Niger.
