For the first time ever, the virtual conference will be streaming live from the Water Institute at the University of North Carolina’s annual Water & Health Conference

This year’s theme "MHM and WASH: Supporting a gender-responsive learning environment" aims to highlight national examples of supportive WASH in schools enabling environments that ensure that schools are ready for girls. The conference will focus on the five priorities identified for transforming MHM in schools by 2024.
