Menstrual Equity. Period
AMWA launched a new initiative in 2021 to promote menstrual equity to end period poverty.
This work is a collaborative effort promoted by AMWA’s Premedical Division and the American Women’s Hospitals Service.
Our first project was to provide menstrual pad kits for girls in Suriname. These were shipped to Suriname in. 2023 and a menstrual toolkit was presented to the First Lady of Suriname HE Melissa Santokhi by AMWA Global Health Lead, Dr. Padmini Murthy during the UN General Assembly in 2023.
