These communities, being marginalized, are already more prone to diseases and illnesses than the more fortunate, but the onset of the pandemic has worsened their condition. This insufficiency of resources has denied them access to basic human rights, like hygienic conditions, and this has caused their condition to become dire, which is why the issue has to be urgently addressed.
• People belonging to marginalized communities don't have resources to meet ends, be it the money to buy basic resources, because of which they are unable to meet regular hygiene.
• They lost their means of livelihood due to COVID as many of them are petty vendors and domestic workers, they have no way of earning a living.
• They don't have a space where they can live under hygienic and sanitary conditions. They live in crammed-up spaces, and on top of this, the women and adolescent girls have no knowledge about menstrual health. What they do know comes from traditional practices which are also ridden with societal taboos and stereotypes.
• Due to the pandemic they have to use basic resources like water for general cooking and cleaning purposes leaving none to maintain hygienic practices during their menstruation.
These womenfolk belong to communities that have been marginalized for ages and are forced to resettle frequently.
