The purpose of this follow-up study was to assess the implementation of the Ministry of Education directives in the circular (No. 01/2015) on provision of Menstrual Hygiene Management Facilities for girls and teachers in primary and secondary schools. Twenty-nine (29) districts were selected from which one hundred and thirty-seven (137) schools were sampled. A total of 430 people were interviewed. 

The conclusion was that although most schools received the MHM circular, few had acted upon them. However, most schools are making an effort but there is very little budget for MHM. The study comes with recommendations to improve the situation.
