Raising awareness and changing negative social norms around Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH)

The day gave us an opportunity to contribute towards breaking the silence, raising awareness and changing negative social norms around Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH). To achieve our goal we conducted a community awareness campaign through radio talk shows. The activities were inspired by the fact that poor menstrual hygiene caused by a lack of education on the issue, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure undermines the educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world. As a result, millions of women and girls are kept from reaching their full potential. Image:
