Michoacán, Mexico Makes Menstrual Products Free Schools and Requires Menstruation-Related Education

Earlier this year Michoacán became the first state in Mexico to require schools to provide free menstrual products to students and to require menstruation-related education in schools. 

The original legislative proposal is here (in Spanish). Additional news coverage is here (in Spanish), here (in Spanish) and here (in English).

In 2019, the city of Morón in Argentina also made menstrual products available at no charge to those who need them (see here) (in English).

As with similiar initiatives in other countries, funding and distribution are key to the success of these programs. I look forward to following the progress.
