Action 4 MENstruation (Menstrual Hygiene)

Menstrual Hygiene Day is an annual awareness day on May 28 to highlight the importance of good menstrual hygiene management (MHM) at a global level. This day is celebrated with a vision to create a world where no woman or girl is held back because she menstruates. This means a world in which every woman and girl is empowered to manage her menstruation safely, hygienically, with confidence and without shame by 2030:
– everyone can access and afford the menstrual product of their choice
– period stigma is history
– eveyone has basic information about menstruation (this also includes boys and men)
– everyone can access period-friendly water, sanitation & hygiene facilities everywhere
This year SERAC-Bangladesh and Global South Coalition for Dignified Menstruation are celebrating this day to break taboos surrounding menstruation, raise awareness of the importance of good menstrual hygiene management through School Community MHM Awareness training followed by quiz competitions.
