Lockdown & Menstrual Health

Justine Nkengbeza Taku
Posted May 7, 2020 from Cameroon

Now is the time to pause and ask?

How are vulnerable young girls and women coping with Menstrual health during is period of Lockdown (Covid-19)?

In normal times, some of these girls do not have access to clean water, descent toilets and even sanitary pads. They use rags, dirty cloths and disposing of the menstrual waste is a bigger issue.

 How then are they coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic. The restrictions of not going out or socializing?

Are you community worker who works with girls and women on Menstrual health, I call on all of you to join us as we celebrate one of the most difficult year of Menstrual Hygiene day, since the creation of the Menstrual Hygiene day (MHDay) in 2014. 

Come this 28th of May 2020, Women and ad girls shall again prove to world, their resilience in curbing and finding sustainable solutions to Menstrual Health & Hygiene which is still seen in some communities and parts of the world as taboo and the stigma that comes with it.

Hello Justine,
Yes, May 28th is just around the corner. It is also the international day of health, right? On that day I wish to celebrate you and the other World Pulse sisters who are advocating menstrual hygiene. May all girls have access to products and information on menstrual hygiene. Good luck in your campaign!

Many thanks Paulina
