Menstrual Hygiene Management is an integral part of the Swachh Bharat Mission, and we are committed to provide a healthy environment to women as per their requirement of privacy, dignity, security, and self-respect. Every teenage girl, woman and even the male members of their families should have awareness, knowledge about the menstrual cycle and its management and about its need and importance.” said Shri Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Minister of Jal Shakti, Government of India.
“Chacha Chaudhary and Period Guide” provides easy-to-understand information and tips on menstrual hygiene in a fun and engaging way.
