Bike Messengers Deliver Condoms as Part of Swiss Health Campaign

July 2, 2010

People in Geneva, Bern, and Zurich can now order condoms by phone and have them delivered by bike messenger in an hour or less, thanks to an effort launched Thursday by the Federal Office of Public Health and the Swiss AIDS Foundation. "The couriers are simply the perfect people to remind people in a pleasant way of our message that one should always have condoms available," said Norina Schwendener, the campaign's manager. The outreach, which delivers three condoms for 8 francs (US $7.50), continues through July as part of Switzerland's "Love Life -- Stop AIDS" initiative.
