World Condom Day is celebrated annually on February 13th. The purpose of World Condom Day is to promote the use of condoms as a means of preventing unwanted pregnancies and the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV/AIDS. This year’s World condoms day comes at a time when the country is experiencing a high risk of Ghonorea infections.
In regard to this BHESP will be taking a walk sensitizing and educating the community on the importance of condom use to prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.
Condoms are a simple, affordable, and effective way to protect against STIs and unintended pregnancy. By using condoms consistently and correctly, individuals can greatly reduce their risk of contracting an STI or becoming pregnant.
On World Condom Day, organizations and individuals around the world work to raise awareness about the importance of condom use and to promote the availability and accessibility of condoms. This can include hosting educational events, distributing condoms, and advocating for condom-friendly policies.
Overall, World Condom Day serves as an important reminder of the role that condoms can play in promoting sexual health and preventing the spread of STIs and unintended pregnancy.
