Universal Access to Female Condoms in Mozambique

Ryan W Daniels | Mozambique

Organization: Universal Access to Female Condom Joint Programme

Many impressive young people, like this college student and activist, are involved in the work of spreading the word about female condoms. These young people help open the minds of men and women about the topic and often times have to dispel myths and misconceptions about female condoms.

As most people reading this are probably aware, HIV/AIDS is still endemic in most of sub-Saharan Africa. Stories about people not believing that the disease exists or that someone who looks healthy cannot have it are common. One might also hear stories about many men who believe that unprotected sex with a virgin will cure the disease. Another all-too-common story is that a man might refuse to have sex with a woman if she insists upon him wearing a condom.

In order to provide women with the power to choose to have protected sex, the Universal Access to Female Condom Joint Programme works to raise awareness about and promote access to the female condom. In Mozambique they help train activists who in turn educate their peers and communities.






I am a documentary photographer and filmmaker in Maputo, Mozambique. The majority of my work focuses on issues of social concern, especially the rights and well-being of children.
