University of Malta shop 'not selling many condoms'

Sales of condoms in the University of Malta have been modest since the prophylactics were controversially introduced.

Caroline Scerri, a pharmacist and registered nutritionist, runs the Health Plus on Campus and told the Times of Malta that demand for the product has been "nothing out of the ordinary".

A survey carried out in 2009 found over 70 per cent of students were in favour of making the precautions available at the location.

As some organisations did not want a dispensing machine installed, they decided that a pharmacy was the best way to go about it.

While the popularity of condoms has not taken off as some expected, Ms Scerri did note that her shop is still proving to be very successful.

"It's much busier than we ever thought and we never needed to advertise heavily," she added.

India Infoline recently reported that people in India are now able to access the Durex Superthin Ultima.
