2010 World Cup to Distribute 3.5 Million Female Condoms

The 2010 World Cup will distribute 3.5 million female condoms to attendees this summer to prevent sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. The month-long event, from June 11 to July 11 in South Africa, offers 3 million tickets for sale.

“Providing FC2 female condoms for the 2010 World Cup demonstrates a commitment to supporting HIV/AIDS prevention efforts,” said O.B. Parrish, chairman and CEO of the Female Health Company, makers of the second-generation female condom (FC2). “This commitment is particularly critical in light of the increasing numbers of females affected by AIDS.”

The World Health Organization states that HIV/AIDS is now the leading cause of death worldwide for women ages 15 to 44.

Men who have sex with men also use the FC2 as part of safer-sex practices.
