Making Sanitary Pads Affordable and Accessible to Women

Only 12% of India’s 355 million menstruating women use sanitary napkins (SNs). Over 88% of women resort to shocking alternatives like unsanitised cloth, ashes and husk sand.Incidents of Reproductive Tract Infection (RTI) is 70% more common among these women.

Inadequate menstrual protection makes adolescent girls (aged 12-18 years) miss 5 days of school in a month (50 days a year). Over 88% of women in our country resort to shocking alternatives like unhygienic cloth, ashes, dried leaves, cow dung, and husk sand. The dismal state of feminine hygiene and care in India and rampant unhygienic sanitary practices leads thousands of women every year, particularly in rural areas, to critical health issues, infections, infertility, and even cancer!

The problem of lack of access to menstrual health products has been multiplied by the affordability dilemma. Around 70% of women in India say their family can’t afford to buy them. Apart from this, a multitude of taboos around the menstruation issue and ignorance on the part of both men and women intensifies the problem all the more.
