Failing Women, Withholding Protection

by Luna Allison | May 11, 2010

The report, ‘Failing Women, Withholding Protection, calls disgraceful’ the fact that female condoms have been so poorly funded and ignored by policy makers that they remain largely unavailable and too expensive for most women to buy.

Oxfam said that studies have shown a high level of acceptability for the female condom up to 97% in India for instance – amongst men and women. Female condoms remain the only existing primary prevention method for women. Yet just one model of female condom has been marketed since its invention in 1993.
