Every year, May 28 is marked as the International Day of Action for Women’s Health. The day aims to draw attention to issues related to women’s health and general well-being. The International Day of Action for Women’s Health is also known as International Women’s Health Day and is celebrated by women and health groups around the world.

The day also aims to raise awareness of women’s rights. The Latin American and Caribbean Women’s Health Network (LACWHN) and the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) work tirelessly and coordinate to ensure the success of their campaign for women’s health care .

One of the main purposes of International Women’s Health Day is to raise awareness of women’s rights as well as their sexual and reproductive health. The aim is to remind everyone, especially parliamentarians and heads of government, that women’s health matters.

Story:

The day originated in 1987 at a meeting of members of the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) in Costa Rica and has been celebrated every year since then. Soon after, the South African government also recognized the day.

Importance:

The main purpose of observing International Women’s Health Day is to draw attention to sexual and reproductive health and rights, also known as SRHR. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, women have faced many problems related to access to health care, domestic violence, restriction of rights, etc. Therefore, it is the need of the hour to educate more people about general wellness and women’s health.

Theme:

According to may28.org, this year’s theme or call to action is “Resist and Persist”, amid crises and global uncertainty. In the context of post-pandemic recovery, activists and women’s groups are holding governments accountable for the gendered impacts of the coronavirus pandemic that remain unaddressed.
