Phase 1 (2019-2020)
Assessing MHH Measurement Priorities
In March 2019, our core group of MHH experts, supported by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) co-convened a multi-sectoral group of researchers, practitioners, monitoring and evaluation specialists, and national governments to assess priority indicators across key sectors (education, gender, health [psychosocial, sexual and reproductive], and WASH) within global health and development. The group sought to assess the alignment of the identified priority indicators with menstruation in relation to adolescent girls in and out of school. For more information, please see the Green Paper which includes recommendations on next steps and priority actions.
