Condoms and Violence

Posted: June 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

Ok Champs, this is quite interesting… But we can re-phrase it… when there are too many used condoms around, users are less likely to use condoms

Condom companies need to invest in reducing violence.  Specifically, violence against women with children.

Why? First, according to the World Health Organization and the U.S. Center for Disease Control, when there is a threat of violence, women are less likely to negotiate condom use. Second, growing up in a violent home as a child is one of the best predictors of being a victim or perpetrator as an adult. However, if condom companies help reduce violence against women now, these women will be able to negotiate greater use of condoms today and odds are their children will be better clients in the future.
