Millions of women around the world cannot afford sanitary napkins, mainly because they’re manufactured using expensive machinery and thus priced at a premium. Such women resort to an older and cheaper alternative – a piece of cloth or rag. This is an unhygienic alternative and can cause infections, leading to a greater risk of complications in childbirth, and even cancer. Jayashree Industries produces affordable sanitary napkins using low-cost machinery with local actors. Women in India can afford to purchase the sterilized sanitary napkins without compromising on quality.
