New Global Campaign Calls for Universal Access to Female Condoms
A new global campaign has been launched to push for universal access to female condoms as part of an accelerated and comprehensive response to prevent the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and to reduce unintended pregnancies worldwide. Known as Prevention Now!, the campaign.
WHO Reports Favorably on Second-Generation Female Condom; Decision Clears Way for Global Uptake
August 14, 2006 - The Prevention Now! Campaign today hailed the World Health Organization's (WHO) announcement that the FC2 Female Condom has met international standards as a woman-initiated dual protection method against HIV/STI infection and unintended pregnancy. The announcement clears the way for its inclusion in UNFPA's Essential Products list and signals to national health ministries and international aid agencies that the FC2 Female Condom can be immediately purchased and integrated into national HIV prevention programs.
A Condom Could Save Your Life!
The surest way to avoid these diseases is to not have sex altogether (abstinence). Another way is to limit sex to one partner who also limits his or her sex in the same way (monogamy). Condoms are not 100% safe, but if used properly, will reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS. Protecting yourself against the AIDS virus is of special concern becuase this disease is fatal and has no cure.
About two-thirds of the people with AIDS in the United States got the disease during sexual intercourse with an infected partner. Experts believe that many of these people could have avoided the disease by using condoms.
Condoms are used for both birth control and reducing the risk of disease. That's why some people think that other forms of birth control -- such as the IUD, diaphragm, cervical cap or pill -- will protect them against diseases, too. But that's not true. So if you use any other form of birth control, you still need a condom in addition to reduce the risk of getting sexually transmitted diseases.
How to Use a Condom
Currently, condoms are the only widely available, proven method for reducing transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) during intercourse. Organizations around the world recommend condom use for the prevention of pregnancy and HIV/STIs.
The American Social Health Association (ASHA) supports the promotion and use of male latex condoms to limit the spread of sexually transmitted infections and their harmful consequences. Condoms are effective when people use them correctly and consistently.
The surest way to avoid transmission of STIs is to abstain from sexual intercourse or to be in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and is not infected with any sexually transmitted infections.
