International Day of Action for Women’s Health: May 28

The International Day of Action for Women’s Health is observed on 28 May every year by women and health groups across the world to spread awareness about their health and rights.

This day aims to promote awareness on issues linked to women’s health and well-being, such as sexual and reproductive health and rights, in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic, where women are more likely to face the burden of social and economic effects . The goal is to remind everyone, particularly government leaders and legislators, that every woman’s health is important.

Hidden Pockets Collective initiated conversation on social media around sexual and reproductive health as a part of #InternatioanlDayofActionforWomensHealth.

Below are the details of our social media initiatives:
