Women and girls around the world need to manage their menstruation during their reproductive age. The specific challenges that women and girls experience depends on social norms, customs, education and socio economic factors. Managing menstruation with normalcy and in dignity remains a challenge everywhere. However, the issue of menstruation in Bangladesh remains a difficult issue to discuss openly, particularly among adolescents despite its importance in this delicate stage of their life.
To overcome this situation, youth led advocacy effort to reach community level is needed and the voices are needed to be heard by policy makers. Toward that effort, SERAC-Bangladesh in partnership with Ipas and MH Day will be celebrating the world menstrual hygiene Day 2018 followed by publishing a demand based documentary which will focus on how this high taxation and high costing issue of sanitary pads are affecting poor girls and women mostly the slum living people of urban areas. Another event is a “Youth advocates training on Menstrual Hygiene Management” which will create human assets to reach policy makers in creative and effective ways of advocacy on this high taxation issue.
