Improving access to clean water and sanitation

Access to clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene is not only essential for health and well-being but also a necessity to achieve gender equality. Over 771 million people lack access to clean water, and almost 2 billion people lack access to decent toilets. This silent disaster disproportionately affects women and girls, limiting their opportunities and ability to fulfill their potential. As a result, millions of girls are forced to stay home from school during their periods due to the lack of clean water and decent toilets. Through our collaboration with WaterAid we support their work to improve access to clean water and sanitation all over the world.

Next Period is committed to creating a systemic shift in how we address menstruation issues and pushing for more resources for research. Together, we work to increase knowledge about menstruation, break taboos and drive change.
