Women Lack Access To Female Condoms In Gulu, Uganda, UPI Reports

“The fight against AIDS has been waged for more than three decades, with more people becoming infected each day, yet preventive measures such as female condoms are not being embraced in some areas of Gulu, a post-conflict region in northern Uganda, said the district’s planner, John Luwa,” United Press International reports. “He said Gulu has some of the highest HIV/AIDS rates in the country but accessibility to female condoms is still difficult for women,” the news agency writes (Layoo, 12/17).
