Condoms Won't Lead to More Sex - NGOs

Rights organisations, Equal Education (EE) and the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) say providing condoms to schools will not increase sexual activity.

In a joint statement, the two organisations also point out that, "Providing condoms in schools would not amount to encouraging children to break the law."

They say it is arguable that the availability of condoms will help to confront young people with some of the gravity and consequences of sex, and thereby amount to the opposite of encouragement.
