As Bhutan sets to mark the Menstrual Hygiene Day today, the Patron of Red Dot Bhutan, Her Royal Highness Princess Eeuphelma Choden Wangchuck released a statement calling on everyone to support inclusive menstrual health management. 

“As we mark the International Menstrual Hygiene Day, I call upon the Royal Government of Bhutan, our development partners, and every individual to support our initiatives to ensure an inclusive menstrual health management. Together, we must strive towards a society where menstruation will not create stress, shame, or become a hindrance to our girls and women in fulfilling their aspirations.”

The Red Dot Bhutan is a campaign that advocates for menstrual hygiene across the country with support from the Ministry of Education and development partners including UNICEF, SNV and Save the Children.
