Lack of Funding Derails Free Condom Programme

Reduced donor funding forces Namibia to shrink the supply of free condoms, threatening the country's fight against sexually transmitted diseases

According to a report, reduced donor funding has forced the Namibian government to shrink the supply of free condoms, threatening the country's fight against sexually transmitted diseases.
 
A ministry of health and social services study shows free condom distribution has fallen from 25 million condoms five years ago to 15 million in 2011-2012.
 
The supply of female condoms over the same period dropped from 499 000 to 281 000.
 
One of the key donors, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has in the past years scaled back funding.
