Brazil to Install Condom Dispensers in Schools to Fight AIDS

December 3, 2007

On Friday, the head of Brazil's National Program of Sexually Transmitted Diseases announced plans to place condom-dispensing machines in public schools in a bid to prevent HIV/AIDS. Mariangela Simao said 100 schools will receive the machines next year. The health and education ministries and the UN sponsored a nationwide contest for students to design the dispenser, and the potential models were selected on Friday, said Agencia Brasil, the state-run news agency. Earlier in the week, Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao said Brazilians ages 13-24 are the target of Brazil's anti-AIDS campaign this year.
