The world will celebrate Menstrual Hygiene Day 2018, which takes place on 28 May and has the theme (and hashtag) of #NoMoreLimits. To promote this day and the important messages it aims to spread, WSSCC will share tailored content about the importance of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM). WSSCC’s members and partners are actively invited to:

  • Share messaging about the importance of Menstrual Hygiene Management, especially as it relates to the theme of this year’s MH Day.
  • Share information about their advocacy and WSSCC’s own work on MHM.
  • Participate in a dedicated Tweetchat (a virtual seminar) on the subject of MHM on the 28th of May.

WSSCC will feature member and partner initiatives on MH Day from various locations around the world and promote member articles through our social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. WSSCC encourages its members and others to follow us on social media and request that you let us know about any MH Day activities that you are planning so that we can promote your work in the lead-up to the day, giving increased visibility and recognition for the good work being done.  Feel free to email members@wsscc.org with details of your activities.

To make information sharing easy, WSSCC is creating a special Menstrual Hygiene Day social media package, which will be distributed to members and partners, and available on our website and social channels, during the week of 14 May 2018. The pack will provide infographics, suggested wording and hashtags, guidelines on how to effectively use social media for your advocacy and more, to use on individual social media channels in the lead up and during MH Day.

‘We look forward to all WSSCC members, partners and anyone else, participating in the MH Day campaign,’ says Ms. Virginia Kamowa, WSSCC’s Senior Technical Expert on MHM. ‘It is important to spread the word on the importance of Menstrual Hygiene Management on the lives of women and girls. MHM leads to more girls in school, safety and dignity of women,  more productive time at work, and an improved quality of life for all!’
