Study calls for focus on menstrual hygiene management 27.5.2018 General News
A study released on the eve of the Menstrual Hygiene Day has emphasised the need for educational curriculum to focus on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) along with its practical and biological aspects. "The national educational curriculum focuses on practical and biological aspects of menstruation and personal hygiene rather than MHM," said the new WaterAid-UNICEF global report. There is a lack of information on psycho-social changes and reproductive health or skills-based hygiene education and low capacity among teachers/frontline staff on MHM, said the report quoting various studies.

Staging a protest against Andhra Pradesh government's negligence towards healthcare, Jana Sena Party (JSP) president Pawan Kalyan on Saturday asked the former to resolve the issue of chronic kidney disease (CKD).Speaking to ANI, the JSP leader slammed the Chandrababu Naidu-Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government for being apathetic towards the basic healthcare of the poor."Uddayan is facing an epidemic and is a long pending issue for more than two decades.
