On 28 May 2014, Ugandans celebrated the launch of Menstrual Hygiene Day with a walk across the center of Kampala which aimed at breaking the silence around menstrual hygiene and joining the discourse on Menstrual Hygiene Management with children showcasing menstrual management messages.
The Menstrual Hygiene Day celebrations also included a press conference at the Ugandan Parliament organised for stakeholders with interest in MHM and the media. The press conference gave voice to lead speakers from the line Ministries of Education, Water and Health and revealed key field findings of a status report based on a study conducted by SNV/IRC.
