During the 2022/23 financial year, there is a budgetary allocation R225 million in equitable share allocation was given to provinces in order to supply sanitary pads to learners. In the event that a Provinces do not deliver on the mandate, it will not be due to the absence of the budget but due to provincial internal processes.
