Menstruation Matters

Hello everyone! May 28- Menstrual Hygiene Day! In this blog post you’ll learn about how this day initially came to be a thing, why it’s relevant to HEEALS, and why it is relevant to YOU! So, let’s start with some introductions. Menstrual Hygiene Day began in 2013 when an organization called WASH United got together and began laying out plans. On May 28, 2014 (four years ago today!) Menstrual Hygiene Day was really born. Since then, it has blossomed into a global opportunity to discuss issues women face surrounding menstruation and a chance to educate people about these issues. In 2017, India was the country with the most events  [1]  - we had a total of 67! Hopefully this year we’ll be able to even top that.

HEEALS at NIINE Movement's Menstrual Awareness Conclave! ITC Maurya Hotel Delhi

"Yesterday afternoon, our intern Jayde spent her afternoon representing HEEALS at NIINE Movement's Menstrual Awareness Conclave! The event was attended by activists, artists, health professionals and policy-makers, who all share the common goal of deconstructing the cultural taboos that women face regarding menstruation! The two panels, "Bholi: Loss of Fertility in Females" and "Rangoli: Absenteeism of the Girl Child in Schools" featured influential speakers such as Poonam Muttreja, Shabana Azmi, Dr. Jennifer Butler and Nishtha Satyam! Oh, and we must not forget, guest of honour and star of "Padman", Akshay Kumar!  Jayde is so thankful to have had the chance to attend this event along with so many prominent individuals in the Menstrual Awareness community, and show that HEEALS aligns itself with empowering female health and success!"
