World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18th of 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 2023 is Cardiovascular Disease.

The White Paper, Information Leaflet, Engagement Toolkit and all available translations will be available to download below in the weeks prior to World Menopause Day.
