Indore, Madhya Pradesh: Medyseva, MP based telemedicine health care startup recently conducted ‘Daan Utsav’ in several parts of the country to create awareness on the present state of menstrual hygiene management in rural areas, and what measures and initiatives can help fill the implementation gaps under its flagship campaign ‘Har GharSwasth’.
Despite the multiple signs of progress, the harsh truth is that only about 30% of women have access to sanitary napkins in India. This means that the majority of women in the county are still struggling for the very basic needs, and are fighting the societal taboos.
Dr. Vishesh Kasliwal, Founder & CEO, Medyseva shared, “Lack of menstrual hygiene is connected with negative effects such as infections of the reproductive and urinary tract, which may lead to future infertility and birth complications. Proper knowledge about menstrual hygiene and its application can improve adolescent girls’ reproductive health to a great extent. Many women in rural areas cannot afford the expense of sanitary napkins. We at Medyseva strongly believe in creating a year-long advocacy for creating awareness with free consultation on menstrual hygiene by team of gynecologists, distribution of free Sanitary napkins and fighting societal taboo. The initiative under our flagship campaign ‘Har GharSwasth’ was flagged off this year during Joy of Giving week across 6 Medyseva Kendras in Madhya Pradesh, Gonda (UP), Ahmednagar (Maharashtra) and Odisha in the month of October”.
