The Zambian government says it will not distribute condoms in schools until sufficient evidence is provided to prove that it can reduce teenage pregnancies.
Education deputy minister, David Mabumba, says that government will not distribute condoms to school going children because reproductive health activists have not justified their effectiveness in reducing teenage pregnancies and early marriages.
“Government is not distributing condoms in schools. We have heard the call on the same issue but we cannot do that until evidence is given to prove that it will work,” he emphasises.
