The Flow on Effect

The Flow on Effect
Supporting the health and hauora of women and girls
The Flow on Effect is changing the conversation around female health, menstruation and physical activity.

Off the back of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™, Sport NZ has received funding from the Government’s leverage and legacy programme to ensure the event has a lasting impact for our communities and to kick start conversations in many areas related to female health and wellbeing. 

We’re aiming to increase education and awareness about female health and menstruation in physical activity, while working to address period poverty. 

The Flow on Effect is a Sport NZ initiative about: 

  • reducing barriers and stigma around menstruation
  • providing information for adults supporting young people to be physically active
  • empowering rangatahi to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing while staying active.

Whether you’re a young person or an adult supporting a young person, check out the resources and stories on these topics below:
