Menstrual health remains an undervalued market in the Pacific.

Within the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), menstrual health was raised to prominence by the ‘Last Taboo’ research and championed by the DFAT Gender team and Pacific Women.

Pacific RISE and Criterion Institute with the support of DFAT, Pacific Women and the Menstrual Hub convened a workshop to think about where investment can play a role.
