CENTER FOR ADOLESCENT HEALTH AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
THEME: Making Menstruation A Normal Fact of Life By 2030
Menstrual Hygiene Day
On Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022, we are working to break the silence around periods, tackle the stigma often associated with them, and raise awareness of the importance of menstrual hygiene for adolescent girls.
When is Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022, and what is it?
Menstrual Hygiene Day takes place on 28 May every year. It’s a chance to highlight the importance of menstrual care, and raise awareness about the issues faced by those who don’t have access to sanitary products.
Access to sanitary products, safe, hygienic spaces in which to use them, and the right to manage menstruation without shame or stigma, is essential for every adolescent girl.
But for too many, that’s not the reality.
