Despite major developments in the hygiene and sanitation sector in recent years, the menstrual requirements of women and adolescent girls have been ignored. Overcoming this gap is vital. Menstruation is normal and natural, but many women suffer and die because of widespread ignorance and shame. An awareness-building programme from WaterAid Bangladesh (WAB) helped put the issue on the development agenda. Menstrual awareness and management is now incorporated in all WAB and its partners' sanitation and hygiene programmes. [authors abstract]
