Earlier this year, we worked with Boondh, an organisation working in the field of menstrual health management, to conduct awareness sessions for women prisoners in Mysore (Karnataka) and Ludhiana (Punjab). These sessions have helped us develop a list of recommendations for menstrual health management in Indian prisons.  It looks at various parameters such as access to clean water and basic facilities, quality and quantity of sanitary pads made available to women prisoners, disposal mechanisms, and raising awareness among the prison staff and prisoners on issues of menstrual hygiene.
