"We Should End The Silence Around It"- John Mahama's Running Mate Tells Ghanaians

Former President, John Dramani Mahama's running mate professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang has dropped another message for Ghana again and stating that Ghanaians should end the silence around menstrual hygiene as the world is celebrating Menstrual Hygiene day on Friday, 28th May, 2021.

According to her, people have negative feeling towards Menstrual Hygiene and made it look like menstruation is a taboo which is not fair to girls across the world and they must stop it.

Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang state on her social media wall that:

"As we mark World Menstrual Hygiene today, we should continue to strive for a world where all girls can menstruate in a safe, healthy and dignified manner. There is nothing “dirty” about menstruation and we should end the silence around it. 

We need to make sure menstrual products are easily accessible and affordable for the people who need it most. These should be a deliberate part of our national health policy. 

We need a gender sensitive and age appropriate policy that recognizes and addresses the cultural and religious environment that associates taboos with menstruation. 

This is non-negotiable in ensuring that we provide the right environment for girls to achieve their educational and health goals as well as their general well being.

We can and should do this" to encourage Ghanaians and called for government attention on the need of ladies in the country on Menstrual Hygiene.
