Uttar Pradesh

Menstrual Health Management

Armed with information and confidence, young girls in Uttar Pradesh are taking on dated customs and myths in around menstruation in their community. Following training from UNICEF, these young trailblazers now volunteer as peer educators improving the menstrual health of women in their homes and villages. They come from families where menstruation is a taboo topic and homes where they do not have adequate access to toilets and sanitation facilities. However, despite these social and logistical adversities, many young girls like Radhika, Aarti and Pragya are coming forward to sensitize their communities and normalise discussions on menstruation.
