Dear SuSanA Members and Partners,
We hope that you are all safe and healthy and coping well during these difficult times!
Despite the ongoing pandemic, we wish you a Happy Menstrual Hygiene Day!
Menstrual Hygiene (MH) Day takes place every year on May 28th or 28.05. – numbers which stand for the average number of days in a menstruation cycle and the average number of days of the actual menstruation respectively.
2021 is another important year for menstrual health and hygiene (MHH). The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the menstruation-related challenges women, girls and people who menstruate face around the world. Collectively, we can ensure that MHH receives the action and investment it deserves in the post-pandemic recovery.
In addition to celebrating the MH Day, we are happy to announce the 31st SuSanA meeting, taking place in August. We are excited to welcome you again online this year and look forward to making it very special! Stay tuned...
