HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College has developed a website to provide information about global menstrual health.

The site, which debuted Tuesday, provides educators, entrepreneurs and nonprofit groups with a central place to tap into existing educational resources and connect with other in-country and global organizations.

In the United States and other countries, advocates are working to ensure that girls and women are getting affordable access to feminine hygiene products in schools and other institutions.

Daniel Benjamin of Dartmouth’s Dickey Center for International Understanding said it’s a project that aims to promote human dignity.

Deborah Jordan Brooks, project leader of the site, the International Menstrual Health Entrepreneurship Roundup, is scheduled to testify Wednesday at the Statehouse on a bill requiring feminine hygiene products in school restrooms.
