International Day of Action for Women’s Health
May 28th has been commemorated as the International Day of Action for Women’s Health for over 30 years by women’s rights advocates and allies in the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) movement worldwide. The campaign seeks to provide women’s grassroots organizations with greater access to information than was previously available, bring to light significant gaps in the research data on women’s health, and critically, create a platform to highlight the importance of women’s health as an issue.
Menstrual Hygiene Management Day
Adolescent girls in Nepal still face many sexual and reproductive health problems and challenges, amidst gender disparity and other discriminatory social norms. Menstruation is one of them. A majority of girls (89%) also experienced some form of restrictions or exclusion.
Abortion was legalized in Nepal in 2002. Abortion legalization has contributed to sharp decline in maternal mortality, which fell from 580 materinald deaths per 100,000 live births in 1995 to 190 per 100,000 in 2013. Many women in Nepal continue to face barriers to obtaining safe and legal procedures.
