Monitoring Menstrual Hygiene Management Programming in Emergencies: A Rapid Assessment Tool

This Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Rapid Assessment Tool (M-RAT) is designed to assist the humanitarian community in evaluating the status and reach of MHM programming within an ongoing humanitarian emergency. Optimally, it may be used by a small team of two or three people, over the course of 3 - 5 working days (more days may be necessary for a complex emergency). It can also be used as a self-assessment or diagnostic tool for agencies or organizations responding to the emergency, or by the cluster and coordination mechanisms. The M-RAT can be used in a range of settings, including camps, informal settlements, urban displacement or host communities.
