Key resource: Fronteiras Edição 6: Romper com o Tabu Seguinte: Higiene Menstrual no CLTS

A menstruação é uma parte natural e saudável da vida de mulheres e raparigas, mas é muitas vezes um assunto tabu, de que não se fala com facilidade, o que pode levar a sentimentos de constrangimento e vergonha. Também pode fazer com que as raparigas percam a atenção na escola ou faltem à escola. A menstruação é um elemento central de saneamento e higiene que afecta a metade da população do mundo durante uma grande parte da vida.

Key resource: Fronteiras Edição 5: Tornar a Higiene e o Saneamento Mais Seguros : Reduzir as Vulnerabilidades à Violência

O CLTS visa um saneamento total em que ninguém pratique o fecalismo a céu aberto, o que, por si só, tem já potencial para reduzir as vulnerabilidades à violência. As preocupações com segurança, privacidade ou dignidade ao usar instalações sanitárias podem, contudo, fazer com que as instalações não sejam usadas ou que sejam usadas apenas quando está escuro.

La menstruation est un élément naturel qui fait partie de la vie épanouie des femmes et des jeunes filles ; pourtant, c’est bien souvent un sujet tabou, dont il est très difficile de parler et qui peut engendrer un sentiment d’embarras et de honte. Parce qu’elles ont leur règles, il peut arriver que les jeunes filles soient déconcentrées en classe ou manquent l’école. La menstruation est un élément essentiel de l’assainissement et l’hygiène qui affecte la moitié de la population mondiale pendant une grande partie de leur vie.

Key resource: Frontiers Issue 8: CLTS and the Right to Sanitation

Lack of sanitation impacts on the rights to life and health, the right to education (through loss in school days, particularly for girls), and the right to dignity. The purpose of this issue of Frontiers of CLTS is to examine Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) in light of human rights: Do the principles and practices of CLTS reflect and promote a rights-based approach to sanitation? In what specific areas do they do so? What areas of CLTS practice raise concerns about actual or potential incompatibility with human rights? Through this issue we hope to give a fuller understanding of human rights for CLTS practitioners to help improve practice.

Key resource: Frontiers Issue 7: Norms, Knowledge and Usage

The partial or total non-use of toilets, with some or all in a household defecating in the open, is a growing concern. Although all households may have a toilet, communities cannot remain open defecation free unless they are always used by everyone. This is not just an issue of maintenance and accessibility but also of social norms, mind-sets, and cultural preferences. The problem is widespread but most evident in India. This issue of Frontiers of CLTS asks how serious the problem is, why it occurs, what can be done about it, and what more needs to be known.

Menstruation is a natural and healthy part of the life of women and girls, but is often a taboo subject, not easily talked about, which can lead to feelings of embarrassment and shame. It can also lead to girls losing attention at school or missing days from school. Menstruation is a core element of sanitation and hygiene which affects half of the world’s population for a large proportion of their lives.
