France to Fight AIDS With 20-Cent Condoms

December 4, 2006

Ten million discount-priced condoms will soon go on sale in 20,000 locations around France, the government announced recently. The condoms will be priced at 20 cents euro (25 cents US). The goal of the outreach is to make safer sex behavior "a reflex," said Xavier Bertrand, health minister. Venues selling the condoms will include high schools, night clubs, hospitals, pharmacies, newsstands, and tobacco shops. France currently has 150,000 HIV patients, of whom 29,000 have AIDS.
