Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) or menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) is about access to menstrual hygiene products to absorb or collect menstrual blood, privacy to change the materials, and access to facilities to dispose of used menstrual management materials. It can also include the "broader systemic factors that link menstruation with health, well-being, gender equality, education, equity, empowerment, and rights". Menstrual hygiene management can be particularly challenging for girls and women in rural areas, where clean water and toilet facilities are often inadequate. Menstruation can be a barrier to education for many girls, as a lack of effective sanitary products restricts girls' involvement in educational and social activities. With the movement of health and sanitation campaign, TZF has adopted a more integrated principle of healthy human beings as well as the wider healthy environment. Eco-friendly sanitary napkins have attracted many concurrent trends for having double benefits. Menstrual hygiene management can be particularly challenging for girls and women in rural areas, where clean water and toilet facilities are often inadequate.
TZF has always been the prime promoter of Health and Hygiene particularly in creating awareness about the lack of menstrual hygiene and illness concerns. Keeping a prevalent subjugated dependent scenario of a poor class of families, TZF has launched a program Hamari Jeet in two phases (2019-20 & 2021-22) to make the disadvantaged poor women and adolescent girls aware of Menstruation, Hygiene, and Management together by providing free access to Eco- Friendly sanitary napkins to the unprivileged women. Achieving a satisfactory response from the beneficiaries towards the menstrual health and hygiene program to empower themselves in terms of a healthy standard of living and to integrate the use of sanitary napkins as the basic requirements of women's healthy life who in turn are also determinants to take care of the whole family. TZF has marked the project's operational areas which consist of slums and colonies of working-class families. Being the most ignorant class to the scientific understanding of hygiene and associated illness, these classes have to bear the brunt of deep pockets treatment in absence of precautionary moves. TZF has also approached local Educational Institutions as well as Govt schools to provide Menstrual Education and Hygiene management classes to teenagers to normalize menstruation as a natural event rather than social taboos and to attract the focus of every family towards these for ground-level quality growth of the society. TZF has always opened its collaborative engagement with the Institution to join forces for better and more impactful services to society.
