Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021

by Nirdesh Baral

Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021 Poor menstrual hygiene caused by a lack of education on the issue, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure undermines the educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world. As a result, millions of women and girls are kept from reaching their full potential. Started back at 2014, Each year , Menstrual Hygiene Day is celebrated to break taboos surrounding menstruation, raise awareness of the importance of good menstrual hygiene management worldwide. The day provides an opportunity to actively advocate for the integration of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) into global, national and local policies and programs.

Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021 (MH Day) is a global advocacy platform that brings together the voices and actions of non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media to promote good menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) for all women and girls. More specifically, MH Day:

  • breaks the silence, raises awareness and changes negative social norms around MHH, and
  • engages decision-makers to increase the political priority and catalyse action for MHH, at global, national and local levels.

Our Vision

To create a world where no woman or girl is held back because she menstruates by 2030. A world without period stigma and period poverty.

This means a world in which every woman and girl is empowered to manage her menstruation safely, hygienically, with confidence and without shame:
– everyone can access and afford the menstrual product of their choice
– period stigma is history
– eveyone has basic information about menstruation (this also includes boys and men)
– everyone can access period-friendly water, sanitation & hygiene facilities everywhere


  • To break the silence, raise awareness and change negative social norms surrounding MHM around the world.
  • To engage decision-makers at global, national and local levels to increase the political priority for MHM and catalyze action.
