Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2.
    • Universal Access to Female Condoms (UAFC) Joint Programme
  • 3.
    • Making FCs Available, Accessible and Affordable in order to:
    • Decrease of number of unwanted pregnancies 200 million women have no access to contraceptives
    • Decrease in the STI incidence, including HIV transmission
    • 61% of new HIV infections in Sub-Saharan Africa are among women
    • Promote gender equality and empower women
    • 1:20 women die due to consequences of pregnancy or delivery
  • 4.
    • Comprehensive Approach is needed
    • UAFC is partnership
    • Three components
    • Lower prices, more choice, demand creation, competition, supply chain, funding, distribution, awareness, advocacy, etc.
  • 5.
    • Beauty of female condoms:
    • Women initiated
    • Double protection
    • Can be inserted beforehand
    • Needs to be negotiated only once
    • Acceptability is high
    • Leads to more gender equality
  • 6.
    • Why has it not yet caught on:
    • Image problems: noisy, ugly, availability, lack of funding etc
    • Major stumbling blocks are lack of availability and lack of choice and the price is too high
  • 7.
    • Research and development is needed
    • Investment is required in research (pre-qualified different female condoms)
    • More condoms will lead to more demand
    • More demand will lead to competition and better prices and better products
  • 8.
    • FC programmes also fail due to bad supply chain management and stock outs
    • Condoms needs to be brought near to users and to be available year round
  • 9.
    • Challenges in the next years:
    • Demand creation in countries
    • Get unit price down
    • More variety of condoms on the market
    • More funding and commitment available
    • Men and women need to take responsibility
