Media mention of Advocata regarding sanitary napkin taxes

Roar Media mentioned Advocata in a recent article on sanitary napkin taxation.

An excerpt from the article:

“Sanitary napkins and tampons in Sri Lanka are taxed at over 100% at their landed cost (the CIF value), the Advocata Institute, a public policy think tank, said. It doesn’t stop there—the price increases even more by the time the product reaches its retailers, as they add a markup to the already taxed item. “

The breakdown of taxes is as follows:
