The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has launched a colourful new condom variety, Icon Gold, which is expected to appeal to young adults particularly in institutions of higher learning.
Speaking during the launch event, National AIDS Council operations director, Raymond Yekeye said the introduction of the condom provided additional choices for youths which would go a long way in the fight against the epidemic.
"The package of Icon Gold is attractive and is something that young people can want to be identified with. We are hoping to distribute targeting mainly our tertiary institutions so that they are readily available to young people to increase their uptake," said Yekeye.
Zimbabwe reportedly distributes 100 million condoms yearly.
According to its website, AHF has for over 25 years delivered high-quality, compassionate and lifesaving medical care and treatment to people living with HIV.
It's innovative testing, outreach, education, prevention and advocacy initiatives have prevented the further spread of this disease. In order to get to global AIDS control, universal access to treatment AHF is championing the cause.
In Africa, AHF has led highly successful initiatives in all of these areas since it began operations outside of the United States. AHF has operations in South Africa, Uganda, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Kenya, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zambia, Rwanda and Liberia. LOCAL
