The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority has supplied 14 counties in Kenya with free condoms as a way of fighting against the sexually transmitted infections in the country. This action was taken by the health cabinet secretary, Susan Wafula, following the earlier claim that there was a shortage of condoms in the country, something she denied.
The CS said that there has been no shortage of condoms in the country, as earlier claimed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation in November last year. She added that there are around 38 million condoms in the country, blaming the management of the condom request for the lapse in time.
Reports indicate that more than 265 boxes of condoms destined for 50 health facilities within the fourteen counties of Kenya have been dispatched. The counties include: Turkana, Kiambu, Siaya, Lamu, Nairobi, Kisii, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nyamira, Samburu, Malindi, Kilifi, Baringo, and Trans-Nzoia.
This is a clear indication that the government is at the forefront of combating sexually transmitted infections and ensuring the safety of its citizens. However, as an individual, you should also mind your health by being faithful to only one partner to minimize the chances of the spread of such diseases.
