MHM India Summit 2019

The MHM India Summit 2019 takes immense pleasure in inviting all the participants from across the country to attend this exclusive event scheduled to be held on 26th & 27th September 2019 in New Delhi, India. The conference will focus on integrated approach which is the need of the hour to manage menstrual hygiene and bringing awareness in the society.

Though the world is slowly moving towards removing the social stigma surrounding menstruation, the word ‘period’ still remains a taboo in most societies. In most countries, girls still avoid going to school when they are on their period. In India, 23 million girls drop out of school early annually when they start menstruating and many of them end up facing acute health problems. Women in rural areas or in poverty-ridden nations still use paper and other harmful materials such as dried leaves, ash and plastic as a substitute for sanitary pads. Globally, more than half of women are currently of reproductive age—and menstruation is a monthly reality. Yet all around the world, many women lack access to menstrual hygiene products or sanitation facilities, either due to limited availability or excessive cost. Making safe menstrual products available to over 300 million women in India and ensuring that they do use these will be a herculean task, and can only be achieved with due cooperation of all stakeholders and proper coordination between them to improve the status of menstrual hygiene in India.
