SCOTLAND ON TUESDAY MADE SANITARY PRODUCTS FREE TO ALL WOMEN, BECOMING THE FIRST NATION IN THE WORLD TO TAKE SUCH A STEP AGAINST “PERIOD POVERTY”.

THE MEASURE MAKES TAMPONS AND SANITARY PADS AVAILABLE AT DESIGNATED PUBLIC PLACES SUCH AS COMMUNITY CENTRES, YOUTH CLUBS AND PHARMACIES, AT AN ESTIMATED ANNUAL COST TO TAXPAYERS OF 24 MILLION POUNDS

THE PERIOD PRODUCTS (FREE PROVISION) SCOTLAND BILL PASSED UNANIMOUSLY, AND FIRST MINISTER OF SCOTLAND NICOLA STURGEON CALLED IT “AN IMPORTANT POLICY FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS”.
