Menstrual Hygiene Day
is an annual awareness day on May 28 to highlight the importance of good menstrual health management.

It was initiated by the German-based NGO WASH United in 2013 and aims to benefit women and girls worldwide.

It’s a day set aside to sensitize the public about various practices that can help in improving menstrual health.

Menstrual hygiene has to do with using a clean material to absorb blood due to menstruation flow and this material can be changed in private. A lot of young girls do not even know about menstruation until their first period, and because of that, they go out into the public stained, and this can cause stigma.

Parents should talk to their children about menstruation, and also sanitary pads and proper menstrual practices should be taught too. Stigma and improper myths about menstruation should be abolished.

Menstrual health enthusiast, Adidi Iluobe Agnes has talked about these and more in the video above. Please watch, like and share. The links below are to her social media profiles. Do Follow!
