Global Menstrual Collective
The Global Menstrual Collective
includes representatives from UN organizations, academia, government, funders, private sector, existing coalitions, advocacy groups, youth-focused organizations, religious groups, independent consultants, and international non-governmental organizations.
Members work together to build an evidence-base and to advocate for investment, policy, and programming across relevant sectors (WASH, health, sexual and reproductive health, education, gender, etc.). We promote [increasing] access to accurate [and timely] information, products and services, and establishing positive social norms and practices around menstruation.
The Global Menstrual Collective drives, guides, and promotes investment in menstrual health and hygiene through evidence-based advocacy.
Members of the Collective work together on the following four priorities.
- Incorporating menstrual health and hygiene into relevant policies
- Strengthening the availability and use of evidence to drive investment in menstrual health and hygiene
- Mainstreaming a clear and strong public narrative for more and better investment in menstrual health and hygiene
- Collaborating across global menstrual health and hygiene initiatives to enhance collective effort
