On Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022, Health Shots took its commitment a notch higher by partnering with Unicef India and other key online and offline initiatives.
Health Shots, which ran a week-long #NoBigDeal campaign for Menstrual Hygiene Day, joined forces with Unicef India's #RedDotChallenge to talk about the need for educating all genders about menstruation end erase the taboo around it.
Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar and Dr Pratibha Singh, a WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) specialist at Unicef India, spoke to Health Shots and emphasized the importance of sensitizing people about menstrual health and hygiene.
"Menstrual health awareness is an aspect of women's health that we cannot ignore. It is what empowers a woman to bring new life into the world. #NoBigDeal, the Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022 campaign at Health Shots, centered on the message that it's time we throw away the veil of shame around periods. We are glad to have partnered with Unicef India, which has been spearheading on-ground change across the country," says Shipra Yadav, Business Head, Health Shots.
