Menstrual hygiene management is a prime aspect of hygiene for women all over the world. Menstrual hygiene day is celebrated every year on 28th May to highlight the importance of menstrual hygiene and to create awareness amongst the people. Unfortunately even today talking about menstruation is considered a taboo in many societies. Consequently adolescent girls and women in many parts of the country are ignorant about menstruation hygiene which has irrefutably given rise to innumerable urinary and vaginal infections. Menstruation hygiene includes using sanitary napkins , tampons or menstrual cups instead of old pieces of clothes which are used by women in the rural areas. Changing pad or tampon time to time is very essential. Used pads should be disposed safely and we need to keep in mind to wash our hands after disposing pads or tampons and keep the vaginal area clean. Since many women in the rural areas are not well aware of menstrual hygiene hence NGOs organize campaigns to spread awareness and impart knowledge in this field. Vijay Social Welfare Society is one such NGO .It has donated around 5000 sanitary napkins and conducted awareness campaigns to 20 schools and 15 Aanganwadies in association with SG foundation and herbalife to educate girls on menstruation and it’s hygiene. Sessions were conducted on not only hygiene but also on adolescent changes which includes physical, emotional and psychological changes and nutrition ie importance of balanced diet.
Sessions were conducted by experts of these fields.
Initiative should also be taken by the government for making sanitary napkins available to every woman so that no girl has to drop out of school and all the women can lead a comfortable life .
Day 1 of the Menstrual hygeine management programme in government school which was in Vinobha Nagar where VSWS in association with SG foundation distributed 100 packets of sanitary napkins to the girls, gave them information about menstruation and hygiene and later finished the session by distribution of snacks and made them play some games#HerbalifeCome on let’s do good
