Accessing Menstrual Products: A Right, Not A Privilege

The pandemic has brought to light many prevailing issues in our community including period poverty, where people lack access and resources to procure menstrual products. We speak to an organisation addressing this issue in Sarawak and a student who has started her own initiative to distribute feminine hygiene kits to people in her community.
