The Ministry of Health begins this week the distribution by the Unified Health System (SUS) of the first batch of female condoms in 2012. By the end of this week, will be sent to the states and Federal District 2.2 million units, a total of 20 million forecast for this year.

As reported the folder, the distribution of item priority populations defined according to criteria of vulnerability, focusing on sex workers, women living and living with sexually transmitted diseases, drug users and their partners and women attending the prison system.

The condom is also available in health care services for women with difficult to negotiate condom use with partner.

According to the Secretary of Health Surveillance, Jarbas Barbosa, the female condom allows the woman to decide on the use of condoms, so this choice is not just the man. It is a strategy that is part of the Brazilian policy to extend protection options to sexually transmitted diseases, explains.

The female condom has come to market in 1997, when the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) has approved the marketing of the product in the country. Since then, the Ministry of Health has procured and distributed about 16 million condoms for 27 states. The new purchase is 25% more compared to the total already acquired by the Ministry of Health
