Launched in 2016, «No Taboo Periods.» is a campaign, which aims to break the silence around menstruation and raise awareness about the fundamental role that menstrual hygiene management (MHM) plays in enabling women and girls to reach their full potential.
Women and young girls’ lack of access to clean and secure restrooms during their periods, perpetuates shame and fear. On the long term, repercussions are immense and influence on women’s health, education and living conditions.
1. Improve knowledge, attitudes and practices around menstrual hygiene.
