Round-table discussion on appropriate disposal technique of menstrual waste

On the occasion of World Menstrual Hygiene Day (May 28), Aaina in collaboration with Water Aid, National Alliance of Women (NAWO and Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR) had conducted a round-table consultation on appropriate disposal technique of menstrual waste involving experts and policy makers. The objective was to bring some clear policy recommendations for the state government in this regard.
Along with accessibility of menstrual absorbents proper disposal and management of the same is becoming critical to save environment and to maintain health and hygiene. The platform involved engagements of environmental engineers, health professionals, social advocates and staff from CSOs. It was clear from the discussions that appropriate disposal and waste management required collaborative efforts of different departments at local and government level. Creating awareness about the proper disposal among users followed by proper segregation and management of the waste at every step is critical. A way forward was designed taking into consideration the role and responsibilities of users themselves along with municipal corporation to oversee, health department (OMCL) and WCD to create awareness, and OPEPA for safe disposal management.
