Menstrual health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in relation to the menstrual cycle.”

Learn about how "Menstrual Health" was officially defined to better represent menstruators worldwide.

MH Day to break stigmas and taboos, educate, raise awareness of challenges and mobilize funding for menstrual health worldwide. 

At Days for Girls we commit to supporting local leaders as they create sustainable solutions for menstrual health in their communities and countries. This includes our country Programs staff, Social Entrepreneurs, and local MH champions - that's you! DfGI will use MH Day as an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of local leadership in solutions that stand the test of time.

Join us every year on the official date May 28th, or support us all year long!

In 2022, we will contact our state or provincial  representatives to let them know it is important to us that schools in our state provide period products to students for free.
