A, B, C My Body & Me! / Feminine Health and Hygiene

Due to ongoing conflict, many basic resources such as transportation & clean water are scarce for most women in marginalized communities throughout Palestine. Thus creating waves of bad feminine hygiene practices which harm women and their reproductive health. 75% of women get a yeast infection at least once in their lifetime. Most doctors fail to distinguish between yeast & bacterial infections. By distributing a take-home vaginal health test which detects & identifies the form of infection and a hygiene kit, women have been able to manage their feminine hygiene correctly and learn about the best practices of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
