It is an advocacy platform that brings together the voices and actions of non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media supporting women and girls to break the silence about taboos associated with menstrual hygiene.
The intent of Pune Menstruation Festival is to break the silence, raises awareness and changes negative social norms around menstruation, and engages decision-makers to increase the political priority and catalyse action for MHM at all levels of society from global, national and to local. Pune Menstruation Festival aims be a policy dialogue platform to advocate for the integration of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) into global, national and local policies and programmes.
We also aim to feature positive and innovative solutions being taken to address these challenges. Pune Menstruation Festival was launched on 28 May 2019. And will be celebrated in Pune District henceforth from 28 May 2020 every year from 24st May to 28th May.
Every Year 28 th May we celebrate as Menstrual Hygiene Day. Due to taboos around menstruation, girls are forced to leave school, also we find limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure undermines the educational opportunities and health of women and girls around the world.
Due to these challenges women and girls are kept from reaching their full potential. The aim to celebrate 28th May as MHM Day is to create awareness around the world which empowers woman and girl to manage her menstruation safely, hygienically, with confidence. With a mission to break the silence, raise awareness and change negative social norms surrounding MHM around the world. And to engage decision-makers at global, national and local levels to increase the political priority for MHM and catalyze action.
