Re: Production unit of Menstrual Management Pad

Dear Nasir,

Is this for reusable pads or for disposable pads? If it's for disposable pads, and as you're from India, have you gotten in touch with the now famous Indian man who has invented a simple machine?
I did a quick Google search (using as keywords menstrual pad manufacture India) and found this:

The rural Indian inventor whose machine to make sanitary pads shattered a taboo and inspired a film, Pad Man
Feature film Pad Man tells the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who, shocked by his own wife’s secret suffering over menstruation, set out, against the odds, to invent a cheap sanitary pad maker now in wide use all over India

Have you already found other machines in the month since you made your post? If yes, please share for the benefit of others.

If it's for reusable pads then I encourage you to browse through here where some people have posted information about initiatives in Africa in the past: forum.susana.org/231-menstrual-cups (don't be fooled by the URL, the name of the sub-category is "Menstrual hygiene products (e.g. menstrual cups, washable pads, period panties)").

Re: Production unit of Menstrual Management Pad

Hi Elisabeth V Muench,

Thank you so much for providing the link for exploring more about MHM pad manufacturing. I did receive one email from RealRelief that also manufactures menstrual pads in India, I could not go ahead with more information from that party as they were much more concern only for funding part, As I am an advisor to the Government, I can not explicitly provide anything about funding. Unless/Until, I receive a project proposal, I cannot take it forward discussing with the government authorities.

However, I did find this platform useful from a theoretical knowledge point of view and interactive, but access to real /practical information from this platform is really hard. I deeply appreciate all those who come forward with their suggestions.
