Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice on Menstrual Hygiene Management among School Adolescents

Menstrual hygiene management remains a taboo in many communities in Nepal. Cultural beliefs about menstruation such as food taboos and untouchability have negative impact on dignity, health, and education of adolescent girls. 

A cross-sectional study was carried out from October to December 2016 in seven village development committees in Doti district, Nepal among 276 students from grade seven and eight of 11 schools with an objective to assess the current knowledge, attitude and practice of school adolescents on menstrual hygiene management in Doti District in Far-Western Nepal and the findings were published in the Journal of Nepal Health Research Council.
