Compendium on Menstrual Disposal, Waste Management & Laundering in Emergencies
The compendium includes practical guidance in addition to a series of case studies of innovations currently being piloted in emergencies globally. It was developed through field visits in Northern Nigeria, Bangladesh and Jordan, a series of global key informant interviews and a robust desk review.
The compendium was developed by Columbia University and International Rescue Committee (IRC) and was co-published by 16 humanitarian organizations and agencies.
Also included with the compendium are three infographics:
- Key Components of a Female-Friendly Toilet
- Menstrual Washing, Drying & Storage Needs of Displaced Girls and Women
- Menstrual Disposal: Four Key Elements
This compendium is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
