Uninhibited is a women led,

women centred organisation working in India

At Uninhibited, we believe

Empowering adolescents with body literacy to track their menstrual cycles and understand their bodies helps them seek timely healthcare.

Strengthening government systems to provide responsive healthcare and creating safe spaces for adolescents improves their confidence, bodily agency, and overall health.

Integrating menstrual health into existing adolescent, SRH, and other intersectional health interventions will lead to systemic impact, building a case for adolescent health and well - being.


Our Grassroots Work

Why we do
what we do?

After a decade of working with nearly half a million women and girls, especially in rural and marginalised communities, we've realised that the majority of focus within menstrual health and hygiene is on the hygiene component.

The critical health aspects—such as menstrual irregularities, menstrual health conditions, the impact of menstrual health on mental health/adolescent health, and the link between major health concerns like anaemia, PCOS/PCOD, teenage pregnancies, and menstrual irregularities—


are often ignored.

We are here to build that evidence, influence government systems to adopt integrated solutions, and enable the global ecosystem to look at menstrual health more comprehensively.
