The USAID Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnership and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) program on December 6 convened 75 Nepali business leaders and policy makers for ‘Menstruation at Work: Improving Business Outcomes.’ This event marked the end of a groundbreaking nine-month pilot operation that demonstrated how Nepali businesses can improve menstrual hygiene management in their workplaces while also promoting inclusive growth.

Based on the two pilot programs at Shangrila Carpet Factory and Milha Custom Rugs, ‘Menstruation at Work: Improving Business Outcomes’ highlighted the impact of private sector leadership in creating menstruation-friendly workplaces on women, businesses, and inclusive economic growth for all Nepali people.

Dr. Dil Bahadur Gurung from the National Planning Commission was the Chief Guest. Dr. Usha Jha, former member of the National Planning Commission gave the key note address. A panel discussion moderated by the Vice President of the Federation of Women Entrepreneurs Association of Nepal, Neeru Rayamajhi Katri, also took place. Panellists were Guna Raj Shrestha from the MHM Partners Alliance, Dr. Anjana Dongol from the Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences, Dorje Lama the owner of Shangrila Carpet Factory, and Jiblal Pokharel from Nepal CRS Company.
