Signature campaign for awareness on Menstruation
A high percentage of girls and adolescents lack access to the right information on menstruation due to society’s silence and orthodox mind-set. This problem is prevailing in both rural and urban areas.
Today, on the occasion of National Girl Child Day, a signature campaign for awareness on menstruation was organized in Sector P, Basant Kunj Yojna, Dubagga. The event was conducted with the joint efforts of Badlav and Youth ki Awaaz under the “Period Parichay” campaign which is led by Bhawna Rai.
“Period Parichay” aims at building awareness among people on menstruation, also it is working along with health service providers for the implementation of the Menstruation related government scheme since September 2020.
In today’s signature campaign, the participants presented three major demands before the government which are the opening of Anganwadi center in their area, open-closed P.H.C, and implementation of Rashtriya Kishore Swasthya Karyakaram in their area.
