Our Approach

At Days for Girls, our Policy and Advocacy strategy is focused in these key areas.

Equip Local Leaders

We provide training, resources, and support so that our staff, social entrepreneurs, and volunteers can champion menstrual health in their home communities.

Grow the Field

We work with individuals and institutions to help grow menstrual health research, evidence, and shared learning.

Strengthen Alliances

We build and strengthen coalitions and individual partnerships across sectors like gender equity, WASH, education, humanitarian response, and disabilities.

Improve Policy

We advocate and provide technical assistance to governments, so that they create and implement policies and programs that support menstrual health.

Become a Period Positive Workplace

In the mission for menstrual equity, Days for Girls, The Policy Project, Share the Dignity, Population Services International Europe, The Pad Project, and The Toilet Board Coalition partnered to create the Period Positive Workplace initiative to help organizations around the world build menstrual equity.
