Davao City 'to benefit from condom distribution'

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte wants an ordinance passed that will make it easier for people to get access to condoms.

Speaking to the Sun Star, Ms Duterte said she expects to see opposition from the Catholic Church in the Philippines, but she has already briefed councillors about the scheme in its entirety.

"The city is set to receive a grant for free condoms, which the City Health Office will distribute," she added.

If the project does go ahead, it will mean people will be given access to condoms.

This could then reduce the number of individuals who contract a sexually transmitted infection such as HIV or syphilis.

For those who are unsure of what condom to opt for, they may be interested to know size, flavour and material are all important considerations when buying them.

This is according to spicezee.com, which noted users have to make sure they pick a prophylactic that is right for them.
