World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18th October. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available for improving health and wellbeing. We encourage professionals and women to participate in this global awareness raising campaign by printing and sharing these materials, organising events to engage their communities, and sharing World Menopause Day social media posts.

The theme for World Menopause Day 2022 was Cognition and Mood.

The October print issue of Climacteric includes the White Paper. The paper is also available via Climacteric online with free access.

Translated versions of the paper, poster and consumer leaflet are available below.

Please keep us updated on your World Menopause Day activity by including us in social media posts and using #WorldMenopauseDay or emailing information to
