Menstrual Disposal, Waste Management & Laundering in Emergencies: A Compendium aims to provide strategic guidance to support organizations and agencies seeking to rapidly address these critical and often overlooked aspects of an MHM response. The compendium complements
the MHM in Emergencies Toolkit, which identified a few key gaps in practice, namely: menstrual disposal, waste management and the laundering of reusable materials. 
The compendium was informed by a desk review, qualitative assessments with a range of humanitarian actors and organizations, environmental inspections of new approaches and strategies being piloted and direct discussions with displaced girls and women directly experiencing these issues.
