INTRODUCTION

Menstrual hygiene day is an annual awareness day on 28th May, that aims to raise the awareness about the importance of good menstrual hygiene management for women and adolescent girl worldwide. It was initiated by a German based NGO “WASH United” in 2014. May 28th was chosen for its symbolism since May is the 5th month of the year and most women average 5days every month and their cycle is approximately 28 day.

As per “AYUSH” circular, Dr. DY Patil CON has decided to conduct an awareness programme on menstrual hygiene for students and staffs.
