In 2014, the United Nations declared May 28 of every year as Menstrual Hygiene Day in recognition of the woes girls and women experience during menstruation. This was a reaffirmation of the world’s commitment to create more befitting living conditions for girls and women. Uganda commemorated the first Menstrual Hygiene Day in 2014 and in August of the same year held the first International Menstrual Hygiene Management Conference, here in Kampala. MH Day was established to help break the silence and build awareness about the fundamental role that good Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) plays in helping women and girls reach their full potential. Through a strong network of dedicated partners, the day enabled action and advocacy around MHM, locally and globally. This publication synthesises reports from different parts of the country where MH day was celebrated.
