Celebrate Global Female Condom Day
September 16 is Global Female Condom Day and 2015 is the fourth year that this annual celebration of the female condom has taken place. Learn more about how the day is being marked at www.femalecondomday.org.
First introduced to the market over 20 years ago, innovative female condom designs continue to be developed. Calliope, the Contraceptive Pipeline Database, provides brief profiles of the female condoms that are in development and/or available in limited markets. This includes the Origami Female Condom, the Natural Sensations Panty Female Condom, the Velvet Female Condom and more.
From the CTI Exchange resource library, you can also access the Female Condom Market Intelligence Portal, a website for those interested in the procurement or supply of female condoms.
The Global Health Technologies Coalition Breakthroughs blog has an informative post today on the history and the future of the female condom.
Finally, there is a female condom conference planned for December 1-3, 2015 in Durban, South Africa, organized by the Universal Access to Female Condoms Joint Programme.
