INTERNATIONAL MENSTRUAL HYGIENE DAY

   Menstruation and menstrual practices are still cloudy by taboos and socio-cultural restrictions resulting in adolescent girls remaining ignorant of the scientific facts and hygienic health practices, which sometimes result into adverse health outcomes.  
   Hence, to commemorate the celebration of the International Menstrual Hygiene Day (May 28), OCDI on the 31st of May visited Government Day Secondary School Otte, to sensitize the girls on the beliefs, conception and source of information regarding menstruation and to find out the status of menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls.over 200 girls where present and sanitary products where shared.
