Terms of Reference (ToR) for Communications Intern
The Menstrual Health Hub (MH Hub)
The Menstrual Health Hub gUG is a female health nonprofit. We work to support innovative approaches and build and connect a vibrant ecosystem of investors, social enterprises, donors, NGOs, researchers and advocates invested in advancing female health. The MH Hub seeks to overcome geographical and thematic barriers to help professionalize a fragmented field and strengthen collective impact at the local, regional and global level. Our vision is a world that is committed to the collective and meaningful recognition that menstrual health is a priority in the progression towards gender equality.
Our mission is to improve communication, connection and collaboration within the menstrual health community through an online platform that centralizes research, education and learning, policy and innovation (our pillars of engagement). We want to catalyze action on this important topic by raising the profile of menstrual health work, and ensuring that all actors and practitioners in this field have the necessary resources and opportunities to improve menstrual health. At MH Hub, we see the menstrual cycle as the entry point to female health issues more broadly and promote connection and collaboration across the space in order to strengthen collective impact around women and girl’s empowerment and development.
Our work is guided by six principles which encompass who we are, and the attitude we take: Centralization and Connection, Cross-sector Communication, Constructive Contribution, Curation, Credit, and Cooperation.
