More than 180 million condoms distributed … Featured

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded the distribution of 185 million condoms as part of the Condom Social Marketing Program for HIV Prevention in the Dominican Republic.

Population Services International (PSI) through its national affiliate, Society For Family Health (SFH), presented the results of the program that has been implemented in the country over the past 13 years.

The initiative “achieved a significant impact on the Dominican Republic’s national response to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS,” according to a PSI communiqué.

PSI executive director Wendy Alba said that the program had closed the gap in terms of access and availability of this important means of preventing sexually transmitted diseases, as well as unplanned pregnancies, and has contributed to saving hundreds of lives.

The event at the Sheraton hotel was attended by USAID health officer Jo Jean Elenes and Luis Feliz Báez, the head of the General Directorate for Control of STIs and AIDS (DIGECITSS), as well as Víctor Terrero, director of the National Council for HIV and AIDS (CONAVIHSIDA), and other personalities.
