“Poor quality services disproportionately impact adolescent girls who often struggle to manage their menstrual hygiene in school. Access to all three elements of WASH is necessary for adequate (MHM). As such, it is adolescent girls who stand to gain most from ongoing efforts to achieve universal access to WASH in Schools. It is estimated that, in 2016, 335 million girls went to primary and secondary schools without water and soap available for washing their hands when changing sanitary pads or cloths."
