With localized impacts from a global program, IP has made a significant difference in the fight to end Period Poverty. Period Poverty is the lack of access to period products and education – it affects at least 500 million women and girls globally, even in the most economically developed countries. IP partnered with Proctor & Gamble’s Always® brand for the Fighting Period Poverty in Our Communities campaign to support local organizations where we live and work. In the U.S., 1 in 5 girls have missed school due to lack of access to period products – that is more than 3.5 million girls. In 2023, IP advanced its period poverty campaign by hosting 60 kit packing events across 9 countries providing 30,000 Period Care kits comprised of more than 720,000 units of product given to directly the women and girls who need them most.
