Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Knowledge Hub

Ambassador Demeke A. Ambulo, the Ethiopian Ambassador to India, on the occasion of the Menstrual Hygiene Day, launched the Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Knowledge Hub, a dedicated space designed to foster education, research, and advocacy on menstrual hygiene management at Sulabh International campus.

This milestone marks a major advancement in Sulabh’s mission to break the silence around menstruation and empower everyone with the knowledge and resources they need.

Kumar Dilip, President of Sulabh International, emphasized, “Sulabh has visitors from all over the world on a daily basis, many of whom are students. We see the MHM Knowledge Hub as an effort to raise awareness and engage men and boys in breaking the taboo around periods. This will complement our MHM-based livelihood programs across the country.”

The hub will bring together diverse groups of women from various programs, fostering shared learning and engagement. By creating platforms like the MHM Knowledge Hub, we aim to provide sustainable solutions and empower women and girls across India, he added.

In 2023, Sulabh released a landmark report covering 14 aspirational districts and seven states in India. The report analyzes how women in various remote, isolated, and marginalized communities fare in terms of menstrual wellbeing, needs, and perceptions. Eleven of these were aspirational districts identified under Niti Aayog’s Aspirational Districts Programme (ADP), and three more were added due to their specific vulnerabilities. The project period spanned from February 2022 to April 2023.
