The UK is committed to enabling all girls, women and people who menstruate to manage their periods safely, hygienically and with dignity, allowing them to stay in school and fully participate in society. DFID’s future work on disability inclusion will look at how its investments in menstrual hygiene management can be more disability inclusive.
