World Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022: Here’s why this day is of great significance

World Menstrual Hygiene Day is observed to promote awareness about menstrual hygiene. 

Every year, 28th May is observed as World Menstrual Hygiene Day. This day is observed to raise and promote awareness amongst women about the importance of menstrual hygiene. It was first observed in the year 2014 by German-based NGO 'WASH United’.
