Mobilizing for Menstrual Health Day

Discover how you can take action on Menstrual Health Day, taking place on May 28, with this CanWaCH webinar featuring WASH United, Femme International and United Way’s Period Promise campaign.

With the theme ‘It’s Time for Action’ WASH United provides an overview of Menstrual Hygiene Day and shares their new Toolkit to support organizations around the world to advance their work on Menstrual Hygiene Management.
