Menstrual Hygiene, by Deaf Women Included

Inaccessible information can be dangerous for deaf girls. For example, sometimes no one teaches menstrual health to deaf girls in Zimbabwe. Thus, Deaf Women Included (DWI) produced a video to teach them. The video explains that some girls use cow dung or old newspapers to manage their menstruation. But this is dangerous because it can cause infection. Instead, the video explains safe menstrual health for deaf girls. For example, they encourage girls in Zimbabwe to make and wash their own reusable sanitary napkins. 

The video is in Zimbabwe Sign Language with subtitles in English. No transcript is available. We could not assess if the video has voice over.
