The subject of menstruation remains a taboo, especially in many low-income countries. Advice and products on menstrual hygiene are essential for the promotion of health, dignity and education. In this podcast, Dr Belen Torondel and Aurelie Jeandron, both of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), discuss how the SHARE research programme is raising awareness about this neglected topic. They also reflect on their participation at a session co-hosted by SHARE and WSSCC on menstrual hygiene at the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille in March. Listen to the podcast here
