Menstrual Hygiene Day serves as a neutral platform to bring together individuals, organisations, social businesses and the media to create a united and strong voice for women and girls around the world, helping to break the silence around menstrual hygiene management.
Menstrual Hygiene Day will help to address the challenges and hardships many women and girls face during their menstruation, but also to highlight the positive and innovative solutions being taken to address these challenges.
The day catalyses a growing, global movement that recognizes and supports girl’s and women’s rights and build partnerships among those partners on national and local level.
It is an opportunity to engage in policy dialogue and actively advocate for the integration of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) into global, national and local policies, programmes and projects. It creates an occasion for media work, including social media.
Working With young girls, the menstrual hygiene day is an important day for us. This is a day that not only raises awareness on issues surrounding menstruation, but also shows that we are a step ahead in the right direction in ensuring that we work towards addressing menstruation challenges that girls have during this period, Literally!!
