Innovation and technology are the main topics for IWD 2023, focusing on gender equality and empowering all women and girls. Education is a fundamental human right. Essity creates digital applications to teach children correct hygiene habits from a young age. Teenage girls can join our UNICEF Saba Tork partnership program and gain knowledge from experts, doctors, and patients. Our online education tools from Lymphcare (JOBST), TENA and Libero are available to support people with lymphatic conditions, incontinence, and through Parenting.
Essity supports the 'Equal Everywhere' campaign that brings together the United Nations Foundation and partners committed to achieving the urgent systemic change needed at all levels, in all countries, to end gender discrimination. Our aim is to build, nurture, and mobilize communities of support for girls and women across and between countries, sectors and communities. Gender should not limit a girl's opportunities for a fulfilling life.
