World Menstrual Day

JDPC Partners Education Office for Sensitization in Schools

World Menstrual Day is an annual awareness day to highlight the importance of good menstrual hygiene management. In low-income countries as Nigeria, girls’ and women’s choices of menstrual hygiene materials are often limited by the costs, availability and social norms. Adequate sanitation facilities and access to feminine hygiene products are one part of the solution. Creating a culture that welcomes discussion and makes adequate education for women and girls is of equal importance. Research has found that not having access to menstrual hygiene management products can keep girls home from school during their period each month.

Menstrual Hygiene Day creates an occasion for publicizing information in the media, including social media. Public information campaigns can help to engage decision-makers in policy dialogue. The day offers an opportunity to actively advocate for the integration of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) into global, national and local policies and programmes

In each of the 4 schools visited, 100 Sanitary Pads were distributed to 100 students, totally 400 pads to all the schools. The sensitization team learnt that a good number of students need this kind of sensitization and teenage girls are keen to learn sex education.
