Conference in Washington, D.C., taking place July 22-July 27, 2012.
The press conference, “Busting the Myth: 20,000 Voices Prove We Want Female Condoms Now,” highlights the fact that many women and men around the world are calling for increased access to female condoms as a preferred form of dual-protection against unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. However, in many countries, this method of protection is unavailable. Even in countries where female condoms are available, supply remains limited, inaccessible or unaffordable for those who need it most. The event will take place at the Walter E. Joint Programme started in 2008 with the aim of making female condoms accessible, affordable and available for all. The ultimate goal of the programme is to contribute to a decrease in new HIV-infections and STIs; to a decrease of mistimed and unwanted pregnancies, and to the empowerment of women by enabling them to exercise power over their own sexual and reproductive health. The programme is an initiative of four Netherlands organizations: Oxfam Novib, Rutgers WPF, i+solutions, and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
