Scotland to provides free menstruation healthcare to its citizens

Scotland has become the first country to allow free and universal access to menstrual products, including tampons and pads, in public facilities, a landmark victory for the global movement against period poverty. The campaign has been backed by a wide coalition, including trades unions, women’s organisations and charities.
