Menstrual Health

Probahini is a messenger app-based menstrual health chatbot powered by a conversational AI model. Probahini is being jointly developed by WaterAid and Acme AI Ltd. and is being piloted in Bangladesh.

Why period stigma?

Period stigma is a grave issue in Bangladesh and the global south. There are evidences of adolescent girls experiencing their first period being locked up a shed used to rear cattle for three days!

Bangladesh is home to 39 million menstruating women. For adolescents in secondary school, nearly 50% received no lesson on menstrual hygiene from schools. Only 36% of adolescents had heard about menstruation before their first period. 30% of girls miss 2.5 days’ worth of school every month to accommodate for their periods.


Why a chatbot?

Providing menstrual health and hygiene education programmesand campaigns has historically yielded positive results, as evidenced by WaterAid. It serves as a bulwark to period stigma. However, these initiatives are resource-intensive and unscalable. Probahini democratisees this menstrual health and hygiene knowledge, conversationally mirroring a wealth of menstrual health, hygiene, and social stigma resources through a fine-tuned LLM.

Better Scalability

Probahini is considerably more scalable in environments where messenger apps have a good and legacy user-base.

More Affordable

By costs, Probahini is more affordable than maintaining call centers, elaborate IVR systems or mobilising frontline staffs.


Without dependency on a human operator or resource, Probahini stays live 24/7 to provide advisory on demand.
