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.
