Shame, taboo resulting in unhygienic menstrual practices across much of India

Shame, taboo resulting in unhygienic menstrual practices across much of India
- Only in seven of India’s 36 states/union territories did 90 percent or more women in the 15-24 age group use hygienic protection during menstruation, according to the latest national health data.
Not even 50 percent women used clean methods of dealing with menstrual hygiene in eight states/union territories. The mean for these eight states was 43.5 percent, with Bihar the worst at 31 percent, according to the National Family Health Survey-4 (NFHS), released in 2015-16.
