500 million people across the globe lack access to menstrual products, education, waste management and/or hygiene facilities. Not only can this lead to physical and mental health issues, it also has a significant effect on education as some people won’t attend school if they get their period and don’t have the products they need to manage their menstrual cycle. In order to make a difference, we must first understand the depths of this issue before we take action.
