“Successful prevention means scaling up demand for and access to male and female condoms.”

—Michel Sidibe, Executive Director of UNAIDS


Women and adolescent girls are acutely affected by HIV and AIDS; yet most women still do not have access to the only available HIV prevention method designed specifically for their use—the female condom. UNAIDS has been a leader in calling for greater attention to female condoms and this briefing will highlight efforts to increase access to female condoms as a critical tool in a combination, rights-based approach to HIV prevention. Key findings will also be shared from CHANGE’s new publication, Female Condoms and U.S. Foreign Assistance: An Unfinished Imperative for Women’s Health.
