Small-Scale Companies Aim To Produce Affordable, Accessible Menstrual Hygiene Products For African Women, Girls

Devex: Tackling menstrual health taboo in Uganda
“…Long taboo, menstrual hygiene management is entering the mainstream. … Small-scale production of washable pads is common in Africa, but their success varies. … AFRIpads’ as many as 200 NGO clients in 2016 range from church groups buying 50 packs at a time, to major international organizations, including Save the Children and the International Federation of the Red Cross. … Cracking the consumer market is the next challenge for AFRIpads…” (Patton, 10/10).
