International Women's Health Action Day has been celebrated globally on May 28 every year since 1987. The main purpose of celebrating this day is to further increase awareness about issues related to women's health and well-being such as sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) across the world. International Women's Health Action Day is celebrated on May 28 by women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR). Every woman has a right to sexual and reproductive health and rights, and that doesn't matter what part of the world she comes from, what age she is, or what her ethnicity or religion is.
About International Women's Health Action Day: In the year 1987, during the reunion of members of the WGNRR in Costa Rica, May 28 was announced to be celebrated as the International Women's Health Day for Women's Health.
