Menstrual Hygiene Day

Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day), May 28, is an annual global event to raise awareness about the challenges women and girls face due to menstruation and to highlight solutions that address these challenges. MH Day also provides a platform to advocate for making menstrual hygiene management (MHM) a part of local, national, and global policies, as well as programs, projects, and activities across global development sectors. MH Day is organized by WASH United, which has run the event since its inception in 2013. It is an alliance of 340 partners worldwide, including WaterAid, Save the Children, and USAID, to foster policy change, fight stigma, and educate girls about menstruation.
