The Community Medicine Department of Raipur Institute of Medical Sciences Raipur celebrated World Menstrual Hygiene Day, 2021 with the theme “Action and investment in the menstrual health and hygiene.” This was done in the presence of Dean and faculty members who imparted knowledge about the same to the staff and the budding doctors.
Dr. Kiran Akhade, Associate professor, department of community medicine of RIMS has initiated the idea of NISCHINT sanitary bank where third class and fourth class workers of the institute will be provided with good quality sanitary napkins at low subsidized rates and promote the use of same among them. This facility is available in emergency to staff and students of RIMS family and is run purely on cooperative basis. This idea was encouraged and supported by the Dean, Dr. Gambheer Singh and Dr. Vineeta Gupta, Professor & Head, Department of Community Medicine.
