Menstrual Hygiene Day is on 28 May each year.  Poor menstrual hygiene caused by a lack of education on the issue, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure undermines the educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world.  As a result, millions of women and girls are kept from reaching their full potential.

MH Day was initiated by the German non-profit WASH United in 2013. WASH United is the overall global coordinator of MH Day and acts as its international secretariat. The average duration of a menstrual cycle is 28 days.  On average, women and girls menstruate for 5 days per month. Hence 28th of the 5th month was chosen to mark the day.

At Bradon Forest School we have supplies of menstrual products for anyone who requires them.  Students can obtain them from Student Services, any member of pastoral team and PE department.
