We are Committed to Periods. Period.

In line with the Global MH Day celebrations on the 28th May, Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team will join with the theme of #wearecommitted by undertaking a joint commitment by the WASH and Gender teams to improve our humanitarian capacity to deliver services, facilities and products that meet the needs of women and those who menstruate throughout their various life stages.
What does this mean in practice?
We plan a multi-year commitment to improving Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH) related work in our humanitarian responses, with a key focus on fragile contexts.
Across all three years, the Gender and WASH team will facilitate cross-confederation discussions on what we understand by MHH and Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR), of which MHH is a part.
