Kiri commented on Affordable sanitary napkins


I have been working on a project in the highlands of Papua New Guinea for the past two years to design a reusable sanitary pad for rural women. I met Rachel Khur, who was at the time with the Singapore University of Design and Technology and she came to the project site twice over a 12 month period to help us conduct some HCD research with rural women and facilitate a prototyping workshop.

The Simbu Provincial Government has now agreed to fund a product facilitate to produce these sanitary pads (known as Secret Moon) on a commercial basis.

Anyway interested in this project can email me on
