Gramalaya is delighted to extend a cordial invitation to participants nationwide for the prestigious Fourth MHM India Summit 2024, scheduled to take place on January 11th and 12th, 2023, in New Delhi, India. This exclusive event is poised to be a focal point, emphasizing an integrated approach that is imperative to catalyze societal awareness regarding Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management.
Building on the successes of the Inaugural MHM India Summit in 2019 in New Delhi, which drew the participation of over 180 delegates, and the subsequent Second MHM Summit in 2022 in Chennai, attended by 200 delegates, Third MHM Summit 2023 at New Delhi with 250 Delegates from across India, these forums have proven instrumental in fostering collaboration. The networking concept employed during these summits has effectively transformed MHM into a nationwide people’s movement, with numerous like-minded organizations actively participating in the campaign.
While progress is being made globally in dismantling the societal taboo surrounding menstruation, the term ‘period’ continues to carry stigma in many societies. Shockingly, in numerous countries, girls still skip school during their menstrual cycle. In India alone, an alarming 23 million girls drop out of school prematurely every year due to the onset of menstruation, leading to severe health challenges. In rural areas, women still resort to using makeshift materials like paper, dried leaves, ash, and plastic as substitutes for sanitary pads.
Despite more than half of women worldwide being of reproductive age, many still lack access to menstrual hygiene products or proper sanitation facilities. Limited availability and higher costs contribute to this global issue. Bridging the gap and providing safe menstrual products to over 336 million menstruating women in India is a huge task that necessitates the cooperation of all stakeholders and seamless coordination among them to uplift the status of menstrual hygiene in the country.
The upcoming conference will be a transformative platform. It will feature insightful keynote presentations, engaging panel discussions, and case studies highlighting the latest advancements in menstrual hygiene and management. Drawing on the best practices from both conventional and modern practices, the event will create a space for meaningful dialogue and collaboration.
