World Health Day 2021
On April 7th we celebrate World Health Day, an event to build a "fairer and healthier world" this year. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it is evident that some people are not able to live healthier lives and have access to health services like they are supposed to. Due to conditions in which people are faced with such as, low daily income, poor housing conditions, lack of education, gender inequality, and little access to clean water, air, food, and health services.
At Help A Girl Out we deal with period poverty and gender inequality every day. Our goal is to prevent unnecessary suffering, diseases, and health disorders by providing period products to those who need them. Period poverty is preventable and it is necessary to raise awareness, especially on this day. The World Health Organization is urging "leaders to monitor health inequities, and to ensure that all people are able to access quality health services when and where they need them". It is time to support those in need and continue to improve the conditions in which many people live.
We are committed to teaching girls about their bodies, abolishing the stigmas, and informing them about their reproductive health. When girls know how to take care of themselves and are equipped with the proper resources, they can lead a life free of menstrual health concerns.
