Canada: Donation Means Condoms for All on University of British Columbia Campus

September 13, 2007

Responding to an increase in STDs on the campus since the mid-1990s, a manufacturer has donated 25,000 condoms to the University of British Columbia as part of a one-year pilot project. The condoms will be distributed at dorms and other campus locations. Dr. Patricia Mirwaldt, director of UBC Student Health services, noted that reports of syphilis, human papillomavirus, and chlamydia are up, and that "One of the reasons… is that people have not been as consistent with using condoms. People know they should use one, but it's just a little bit boring or complicated to go and get the condom before they have sex."
