Monitoring Menstrual Hygiene Management Programming in Emergencies: A Rapid Assessment Tool

Use this Rapid Assessment Tool designed to assist the humanitarian community in evaluating the status and reach of Menstrual Hygiene Management programming within an ongoing humanitarian emergency.


The M-RAT is based upon the content of the MHM in Emergencies toolkit, and aims to evaluate: 

  • Access to Materials & Supplies
  • Access to Supportive Facilities
  • Access to Information

Optimally, the Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Rapid Assessment Tool may be used by a small team of two or three people, over the course of three to five working days. More days may be necessary for a complex emergency. It can be used in a range of settings, including camps, informal settlements, urban displacement, or host communities.
