Period Poverty

Kenyan girls are at high risk of life-changing violations, including forced early marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual and gender-based violence and unwanted pregnancy. At the same time, two out of three are deprived of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM)—access to products, information about adolescent health and human rights and water/sanitation facilities. This deprivation is known as period poverty.
