On the 28th of May, the world commemorated Menstrual Hygiene Day, with the theme ‘It’s time for action’.
This tweet celebrates the day and points to a concrete action that health workers could take to respond to girls’ needs for menstrual hygiene products.
School closures and stay-at-home orders make it hard for girls to get #menstrualhealth information, hygiene products, or help if problems occur. Every contact is a chance for providers to educate, dispense, and respond to concerns: #MHDay2020 #COVID19 https://t.co/L138QfolUJ pic.twitter.com/ZUImhC2Td6
