California: Keep VD Out of Valentine's Day, Use a Condom
February 17, 2012
Marking National Condom Week and Valentine's Day, the California Family Health Council teamed with the California Department of Health to launch the "Condom Access Project." CAP's website lets youths in select counties, including San Francisco, go online to request a package containing 10 condoms, lubricant, and informational materials; youths can order one package per month. The site also directs teens to local youth organizations where they can receive free condoms. "We know from research that significant barriers to condom access remain for youth," said CFHC President and CEO Julie Rabinovitz. "They cost a lot, youth are uncomfortable asking for them, and in some areas, free condoms can be hard to find." For more information, visit www.teensource.org.
