Menstrual Hygiene Day Awareness Walk

TTCL Ground Dare Es Salaam Tanzania
MH Day raises awareness of the challenges women and girls face worldwide due to their menstruation and highlights solutions that address these challenges, including through media work.
MH Day catalyses a growing, global movement for MHM and supports partnerships at global, regional, national and local levels. MH Day also creates opportunities for advocacy for the integration of MHM into global, national and local policies, programmes and projects.
About 65% of women and girls in Tanzania cannot afford sanitary pads. Evidence suggests that the period around puberty is one in which many girls drop out of school or are absent from school for significant periods of time.
