Menstrual Health, PCOS & diabetes education in schools
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex health condition that affects 1 in 5 women in India. Early diagnosis & treatment of PCOS is important as it has been linked to an increased risk for developing several medical conditions including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. PCOS is an emerging health problem during adolescence, therefore promotion of healthy lifestyles and early interventions at school level are required to prevent future morbidities. Studies predict India will have 98 million diabetics by 2030. PCOS adds greatly to the burden of diabetes in women in India.
Blue Circle Diabetes Foundation, a registered NGO runs 'Project Gaia', which is an initiative to empower women & girls with diabetes in India & in collaboration with Youth Ki Awaaz we demand that PCOS and diabetes education be added to the Menstrual Health education programme in schools in Maharashtra and eventually all over India.
Please share your experiences and thoughts through this survey (any age, gender, medical history or location is fine) which will help us approach the government with data & demand the inclusion of a PCOS & diabetes module in the Menstrual Health programmes in educational institutions.
