SIGNIFICANCE OF CELEBRATING MENSTRUAL HEALTH AND AWARENESS DAY

India is a country of diversity and often menstrual myths are grounded in religious beliefs. These beliefs are hence held closely by people and followed as well. However, these myths prohibit girls and women from managing their period in a healthy manner. Therefore, it is important to break this cycle of myths and taboos. Celebrating such a day will help normalize the conversations around Menstruation and will consequently help eradicate these stigmas from the society. Menstrual Health and Awareness Day will help centralize the efforts of various organizations to: • Reduce silence and stigma around menstrual health and hygiene. • Create sensitization and knowledge on the process of menstruation. • Create awareness about the normal, abnormal and alarming aspects of menstrual health. • Facilitate access to safe and hygienic menstrual management products.
