Harnessing the Power of Media to advocate and promote Menstrual Hygiene Management in Local Communities across Nigeria by Youth Initiative For Sustainable Human Development In Africa.
For a number of girls and women, menstruation comes with unbearable costs as they find menstrual hygiene products practically unaffordable. The products usually are not reusable and so must be bought every month. With more than 83 million people living below the poverty line in Nigeria, menstrual products are a luxury many cannot afford. For girls and women in that situation, it means missing school or work, or resorting to the use of cloth strips or foams which could result in discomfort and even infections.
