MONDAY 7 MARCH, 12:30-13:30 CET Hybrid event

Despite growing attention to the menstrual hygiene needs of women and girls in different geographical contexts, menstrual hygiene management continues to be an issue that is frequently overlooked or poorly addressed. In this context, and during Equality Week, the Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Initiative together with its partners the City of Geneva, the World Health Organization, the Global Health Centre and the Gender Centre would like to share a conversation to shed light, provide clarity, and guidance.

How has the situation in the panellists' respective countries changed over the last 25 years and what is the outlook in the coming years?

Join us for an interactive discussion.
