This week marks the 75th World Health Assembly and Menstrual Hygiene (MH) Day 2022– this year’s theme is #WeAreCommitted. On behalf of Pandemic Periods, As Editor-in-Chief I want to highlight that #WeAreCommitted to championing menstrual health mainstreaming particularly in times of pandemics, conflicts, and other crisis situations.
As a movement, Pandemic Period aims to target a global audience to raise voices of those that are advocating for menstrual health from around the world. In doing so we aim to comply with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 1, 3 and 5 – no poverty, good health and well-being, and gender equality, respectively. We believe that the power of the pen can enable us to reach concerned authorities and individuals which may include governments, non-government originations, health care workers, humanitarian workers, policymakers, academics, or anyone and everyone. It is for this reason that Pandemic Periods has introduced the thought leadership platform to showcase blogs coming from contributors residing globally to emphasize the importance of menstrual health. We welcome anyone with a unique perspective on menstrual health to submit a blog to our new platform.
Together, we can learn from innovative menstrual health movements and programmes around the world!
