Period Products (Free Provision) Scotland Bill

Scotland became the first country to provide free sanitary products to all women after the implementation of the Period Products (Free Provision) Scotland Bill. This is to address “period poverty” within the country. In 2018, Scotland became the first country to provide free sanitary products in schools, colleges and universities. This Bill makes tampons and sanitary pads available at designated public places at an estimated annual cost of USD 32 million of tax payers’ money.
