COMMEMORATION OF WORLD MENSTRUAL HYGIENE MANAGEMENT

The Chief Executive Officer of the Sustainable Development Focus Limited (SUDEF-GHANA), John Baidoo, has stressed the need for intensive education, awareness creation and sensitization on menstruation and hygiene for females in the country. He said Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) supports women to manage menstruation with safety and hygiene management. Mr. Baidoo was speaking to six Primary and Junior High Schools at Tuobodom in the Techiman North District, under the theme “Break the silence on menstruation; Keep the girls at school”. According to him, the day is cerebrated annually on 28th May as a means of focusing attention on the important of hygienic management of menstruation to prevent several diseases. Mr. Baidoo was happy to note that in 2014, SUDEF championed three global commemorations namely, World Water Day, Global MHM Day as well as Menstrual Hygiene Management Day, adding that SUDEF will continue to partner with other organizations to ensure that Ghanaians are adequate education on health and hygiene issues. Pre School coordinator, Ms. Iris Agbemetsi, who took the students through the use of sanity pad, advised them to throw the used material in the KIP toilet or burial it. She tasked the student to bath at least twice a day during their menstrual period. Ms. Agbemetsi entreated those who could not afford to buy the sanity pad to use clean racks that can absorbed menstrual blood and urged them to wash and dry it in the sun or iron them after use. She told the students to be mindful of the materials they used as their pad and asked them not feel shy or shock for the first experience, saying that “it normal in females”. He used the opportunity to thanked SUDEF for joining hands with the Techiman North District Assembly, District directorates of GES and Ghana Health Service to commemorate MHM Day. The Techiman North District Health Directorate, Mohammed Nurudin, urged them to report menstrual pains and disorder to the nearest hospital. He advised those who are at the age of 16 and above without experiencing menstruations should equally visit any health facility. Mr. Nurudin cautioned them against the use of drugs to increase or decrease menstrual period.
