P38. A Toolkit For Promoting Menstrual Equity in Higher Education
Menstrual equity is often overlooked due to the stigma, cost, and maintenance associated with free product programs. Students are more likely to succeed when institutions implement programs that address health inequities. The Project M.E. toolkit outlines a peer-led initiative that addresses barriers to accessing menstrual products through data collection, the recruitment of key stakeholders, identification of funding, and inclusive marketing. This project seeks to increase access to products while advocating for menstrual equity.
