Frontières Numéro 6: Balayer le prochain tabou: l'hygiène menstruelle dans le contexte de l'ATPC

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.

हिंदी 7: नॉर्मस, नॉलेज एण्ड यूसेज (मानदंड, जानकारी और उपयोग)

शौचालयों का आंशिक या संपूर्ण अनुपयोग जहाँ परिवार के कुछ या सभी सदस्य खुले में शौच कर रहे हों एक बढ़ती हुई चिंता का विषय है। हालांकि सभी परिवारों के पास शायद शौचालय हों लेकिन समुदाय संपूर्ण रूप से तब तक खुले में शौच से मुक्त नहीं हो सकते हैं जब तक सभी शौचालयों का उपयोग करना आरंभ ना करें। यह केवल रखरखाव या पहुँच का मुद्दा नहीं है बल्कि यह सामाजिक मानदंड, मानसिकताओं और सांस्कृतिक वरीयताओं का मुद्दा भी है। यह समस्या बड़े पैमाने पर फैली हुई है लेकिन इसे भारत में सबसे सुस्पष्ट रूप से देखा जा सकता है। फ्रंटीयर्स ऑफ सी.एल.टी.एस के इस प्रकाशन में यह पूछा गया है कि यह समस्या कितनी गंभीर है, यह क्यों उत

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.

Afghanistan's CLTS Implementation Manual

CLTS is a new approach in Afghanistan; and all stakeholders need to become familiar with how to implement it. CLTS has been successfully implemented in various countries throughout the world; however, there was an urgent need to adapt this approach to fit the societal and cultural aspects of Afghanistan. The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) in collaboration with UNICEF and WSG members developed this manual for CLTS implementation in Afghanistan. It is aimed at CLTS facilitators who implement this approach in the target communities.

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.

Frontiers Issue 6: Breaking the Next Taboo - Menstrual Hygiene within CLTS

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.
