Period poverty is a critical issue worldwide, with an estimated 400 million individuals lacking access to menstrual products and education. This lack of access can lead to health risks, missed school or work, and social stigma.
In Hong Kong, underserved communities of women, girls, and people with periods experience the negative impact of period poverty on their daily lives.
The Empowered. Period. campaign aims to raise awareness of the challenges faced by these communities and advocate for increased accessibility to critical products and resources that support menstrual health and well-being.
