14 July 2017 – Tackling the Condom Shame
- To promote a culture of healthy sexual behaviour.
- To increase awareness of Reproductive Health and Rights.
Program Details and Rationale:
Tackling the condom shame is a panel discussion which brings together students and Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights experts to deliberate young people’s attitudes to the condom as a means of safe sex and contraception.
It turns out that whilst most sexually active young people are not ashamed to admit that they are having sex, they are embarrassed to buy condoms and other forms of contraception.
This ‘shame’ leads to risky behaviours such as indulging in unprotected sex. Statistics show that the bulk of new infections are occurring among college –age young women(National Aids Council 2016).
To re-frame the act of buying contraceptive so it’s not a declaration of having uncommitted sex, but a smart choice to protect oneself against STI’s and unwanted pregnancies.
Contribution to the sustainable development agenda:
The panel discussion will contribute to the achievement of SDG number 3 to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for Zimbabwe’s youth.
This program has no explicit gender focus, young men and women are expected to benefit equally from the program.
