Introduction to Find information: Knowledge Hubs and Glossaries

If you’re looking to learn more about MHH, there are many resources and platforms available to you. One way to stay informed is through discussion forums and online communities dedicated to this topic. There are also many organizations and initiatives focused on MHH 
around the world. The following platforms provide information on global MHH issues, share resources and tools, and offer opportunities to get involved in MHH activities. 
Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) is a global advocacy platform that brings together non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media to promote good MHH. More specifically: MH Day breaks the silence, raises awareness 
and changes negative social norms around MHH. 
MH Day engages decision-makers to increase the political priority and catalyse action for MHH at global, national and local levels. 
The Menstrual Health Hub 
The Menstrual Health Hub is the world’s first digital networking and knowledge platform that unites and strengthens the global menstrual community. The platform provides an online space to connect with those working on menstrual and female health. It hosts free access to a database of relevant menstrual health resources around research, education, policy and innovation. 
Society for Menstrual Research 
The Society for Menstrual Research is a volunteer-led nonprofit, interdisciplinary and global research organization. The society was founded in 1977 by a group of women from different fields who recognized the importance of menstrual cycle research for women’s health. Its members consist of researchers, healthcare providers, policymakers, health activists, artists and students who share an interest in menstrual and ovulatory health throughout life. The society’s mission is to provide guidance, expertise, and ethical considerations for researchers, practitioners, policymakers and funding providers interested in menstrual health. 
Pandemic Periods Collective 
Established in 2020, Pandemic Periods is a global group of volunteers on a mission to drive sexual and reproductive health rights. The focus is on menstrual health knowledge and expertise at a country level to promote the indicators for the UN’s sustainable development goals (2030). This multicultural, interdisciplinary and regionally diverse group works to push forward the global narrative and ensure that menstrual health is included on the global 
health agenda.
