Engage the media

It is always good to invite and involve media. Special programmes for e.g. women, education are usually interested and looking for good content, especially around media opportunities such as Awareness Days.

We have created a press release and some additional materials for media.  Feel free to use it and adapt for your context.

Promotion and involvement in your event
Invite a range of media to your activities. Having media present is always a good incentive for officials and other dignitaries to attend, and vice versa.

Press conference
Maybe even hold a press conference with elected officials to raise public awareness importance of menstruation.

Newspaper
Write an article or an editorial letter about MHM, your work and include Menstrual  Hygiene Day.  If you need more information, simply contact us!

Radio
Conduct radio-talk shows and call-in programmes, encourage radio stations to air public service announcements.

Engage politicians, religious leaders, stars,....

Champions for the cause
Politicians, religious leaders, and stars from sport & culture can be great spokespersons for the cause!
Some of the great champions that partners have mobilized:

  • First ladies of county
  • Female Parliamentarians
  • Music stars
  • Hollywood actresses (such as Frida Pinto)
  • TV anchorsAs role models they can strongly support to overcome the silence, get the message through to beneficiaries in a
    personal way, as well create media attention.Men in menstruation
    Under the theme menstruation matters for everyone, the importance of boys & men to create the required support is highlighted. Therefore we encourage you to engage male champions for the cause, too! These can be powerful role models.
    (think about “Menstrual Man” 😉
