Haemophilia New Zealand are excited to launch our period project pilot!
 
In recent years there has been a movement in the bleeding disorders community for stronger recognition of the impacts that bleeding disorders have on those who have periods. This also reflects a global movement to recognise period products as necessities rather than luxuries!
 
As an organisation, we think that it is unfair that having a period costs so much. Through our surveys and discussions with members we know that having a period costs even more for those with bleeding disorders and can impact the way that we work, live and play. We want to do something about that!
 
We are looking for 30 people who have a period that would like to take part in this pilot and receive free disposable or reusable period products! This will help us to determine if we should offer the programme as part of our ongoing services to members. All that’s required is a survey at the beginning and end of the pilot.
 
If you would like to be a part of the pilot or receive more information about this programme please email periodproject@haemophilia.org.nz to express interest by 24 June 2024.
