Ditched female condom is back

Tags:

Under this tag i will be posting most of the stories i write for PlusNews on HIV. This is the lastest.
Ten years after Ugandan women ditched the female condom, they are now demanding for it. The authorities I spoke to say the women want a prevention strategy within their control. The prevalence rates are going up and among the unsuspected groups like the marrieds.

However, some women in regions like the western part of the country have totally rejected them citing culture. In Karamajong women use them as bangles to decorate themselves.

Here is the link to the story

Warming up to the female condom

Hi Esta,

Thank you for providing background info and links to your stories. This is such an interesting subject. I think it's important for women to have options to protect themselves without having to rely on men to be responsible.

I look forward to reading more of your articles and your personal thoughts here on PulseWire!

Warm regards,
Jade
