Feminine Self-care Empowerment

Period poverty is the lack of access to feminine hygiene products. One in four women has struggled to purchase menstrual products in the past year due to lack of income. This campaign will provide necessary products to women with limited access.

As a physician working in the Bronx and as a member of the Westchester Bronx Society for Black Physicians (WBSBP), I join many in feeling compelled to give back to our community. With the support of Montefiore Health System, we have launched a project to bring feminine hygiene products to women in shelters and medical student-run clinics across the Bronx. WBSBP has partnered with the Einstein Student National Medical Association to bring this initiative to fruition.

One out of four women has struggled to purchase period products in the past year due to lack of income. One in five girls misses school due to a lack of menstrual products. This alliance is working together to combat period poverty, educate about safe feminine hygiene practices, empower self-care, and instill dignity.
