Are You in the Market for Condoms?

Valentine’s Day is not the only reason to celebrate February 14th this year – it is also International Condom Day! Since its inception in 2009, International Condom Day is celebrated in conjunction with Valentine’s Day as an ideal opportunity to promote healthy relationships and to remind people to protect themselves and their partners.

PSI has been supporting access to condoms through public and private sectors from its earliest days. You can say that it’s part of our DNA.

We’re continually refining our approaches and using new methodologies that will allow us to tackle the last mile of the HIV epidemic and meet the global unmet need for family planning. A critical part of this comprehensive strategy is evolving our condom programming to increase use across all income levels in the developing world.

From donor subsidy to sustainable model: in many of the countries in which PSI operates, we’re creating new business models to make our condom programming more efficient and move towards greater financial self-reliance – long after donor support has ended.
