How Does Lack of Diapers Affect Families & Children?

An insufficient number of diapers has many detrimental outcomes for children and families including a lack of physical, mental, emotional, and educational well-being.

Most immediately, an inadequate supply of diapers forces many parents to leave their children in a soiled diaper longer than is appropriate–sometimes for days at a time. This leads to diaper rash, staph, and urinary tract infections.

When parents run out of diapers, they are forced to withdraw their children from childcare. Without proper child care, parents cannot work to support their families and cannot attend the schooling that will help them provide a firm economic base for their family.
