Neuberg Diagnostics Conducts Menstrual Health And Hygiene Awareness
The awareness drives for teenage girls were conducted in partnership with the NGO, Think Beyond in Mumbai
Ahead of Women's Day, Neuberg Diagnostics, India's fourth-largest diagnostics lab chain conducted an awareness drive for 7th to 10th standard schoolgirls of Powai English High School on menstrual health and hygiene. The teenage girl students were provided with free biodegradable sanitary napkins. In partnership with the NGO, Think Beyond, Neuberg Diagnostics also pledged to provide free sanitary napkins to all teenage girls for a year.
A trained group of doctors from Neuberg and Think Beyond engaged with girls and discussed menstrual health and hygiene management. They delved deep into unhygienic practices related to menstruation management and guided them on the benefits of sanitary pads over old rags, banana peels, and husks. Additionally, the teenage girls were educated about when do girls get their periods, how ovulation is related to periods, duration, premenstrual syndrome, cramps management, how to use the calendar to mark menstrual cycle, waste management of used napkins, pregnancy, care instructions, iron deficiency, balanced nutrition for avoiding anaemia and when one should consider seeking medical intervention.
