Our vision: the infographic for MH Day 2021

Over the past few years, we have made progress towards our joint vision of a world where no woman or girl is held back because she menstruates. However, progress is slow. In order to achieve our joint vision by 2030, we can’t afford to wait for the pandemic to end. We have to step up action and investment in menstrual health and hygiene NOW!  

Right now, we are at a crossroads. If we continue with business as usual, then we won’t succeed in ending period poverty and stigma by 2030. To accomplish this, we need to significantly step up action and investment NOW!
