PSI, UNFPA to Report on Studies Examining Condom Use in Six African Countries
December 19, 2013
"PSI and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) teamed up over the past year to study and report on the state of [male condom use] in six African countries. The results are out in six new case studies that will be presented during a consultative meeting on the Total Market Approach that PSI and UNFPA are hosting" this week, according to PSI's "Impact" blog. "Each case study describes the market for male condoms in each of the countries, and the roles of the public, social marketing, and commercial sectors in those markets," the blog notes, adding, "The studies aim to inform the development of appropriate, evidence-based decisions to increase condom use equitably and sustainably through actions undertaken in the public, socially marketed, and commercial sectors." The blog then summarizes the case studies' findings from each country (12/17).
