Advocating for change

Engaging decision-makers

Our individual influence only reaches so far. To really make deep and impactful change happen, we need to involve the ones who set the framework. We must speak with decision-makers and make them aware of the needs and possibilities for change. This is not a task of one day but a continuous work that gains momentum around MH Day

MHH Fuding Tracker

A key aspect of achieving change on a scale is adequate funding. But who funds Menstrual Health and Hygiene? And where does the money go? The first step to adequate funding is an equal understanding of the current state of funding. Check out the MHH Funding Tracker, the first central source of data on funding for menstrual health and hygiene.
