"Government should make it mandatory for to all schools and public places to create awareness for the use of sanitary napkins and also provide easy access to them by installing simple vending machines with replenishment programs in rural schools and colleges so that girls/women are habituated to use sanitary napkins for better health and hygience management," said Choudhary.
He also added that to solve the problem of sanitary napkin disposal, incinerators should be installed which will reduce the spread of infection caused by unhygienic disposal of sanitary napkins, reduce environmental pollution due to non- biodegradable sanitary napkins and reduce clogging of public drainage system due to the spongy nature of napkins.
