Period products will soon be free for all public school students in Queensland.
Vending machines with free pads and tampons will be installed in every Queensland state, provided by the charity 'Share the Dignity.'
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says over $13 million has been invested in this program.
"I'm pleased to announce that we've got $13.3 million in the upcoming budget to offer free sanitary products at every Queensland state school," she says, "this is fantastic ... with cost of living pressures I believe that this is a great measure, especially for our girls and young women out there across our secondary schools."
Schools can expect to have their 'Share the Dignity' vending machines installed in their public restrooms as early as July.
