The massive impact of period poverty

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


Amazingly there are still millions of women and girls in the world who menstruate but struggle to afford proper, modern, hygienic products that would make their period easier to deal with. It doesn’t take much thought to realize that this period poverty reflects failure across six SDGs. It is a function of both poverty [SDG1] and gender inequality [5]. Addressing it would also help improve health [3], reduce water issues [6] and represent greater equality [10]. Achieving it would also means improved education [4]. These are the obvious ones but I reckon you can also draw links to others as well. So, why not do something about it?
