Tackling the taboo of menstruation
Globally, approximately 52 per cent of the female population (26 per cent of the total population) is of reproductive age. However, in most parts of the world, the natural process of menstruation remains taboo and is rarely talked about.
Menstruation is a natural process; however, if not properly managed it can result in a number of health problems. Reports have suggested links between poor menstrual hygiene and urinary or reproductive tract infections and other illnesses.
