The experiences girls face at school in Bolivia during menstruation had never been formally researched before this project. Data collection in Bolivia was part of a multi-country assessment of the challenges girls face in schools that included the Philippines, Rwanda and Sierra Leone. The overarching aim of this collaboration was to understand the range of challenges faced by schoolgirls during menstruation, as well as the determinants of those challenges, and to provide recommendations for stakeholders. This report presents the challenges and determinants identified, the impact that those challenges have on girls’ health and education, and a discussion of the most important programmatic recommendations in light of these findings. Report tables provide a complete, detailed list of recommendations based on determinants and impact, as well as a list of recommendations made by participants.
