Betsy Teutsch has a site called the Women’s Global Toolkit, where she writes about important and affordable objects that empower women. A recent article provides a good update on what is “out there” in the way of menstrual products for poor girls in developing countries. I was happy to see SHE‘s efforts mentioned, as well as Moses Musaazi‘s work. I am familiar with both of these organizations and their work, but had not heard of the water hyacinth technology, which offers more absorbency. My team has had good experience with Afripads, which wash easily and dry quickly. I know a lot of readers of this blog follow the sanitary provisions landscape pretty closely, so wanted folks to know this update is out there.
