AHF Philippines Says ‘Just Use It’ on Int’l Condom Day


Quezon City, Philippines (13 February 2024) Happy International Condom Day! Let’s celebrate by
sharing the great news that condoms remain the optimal choice for ensuring safer and more enjoyable
intimate moments with your partner. This year, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) Philippines will
host a month-long celebration in honor of International Condoms Day. The aim is to educate on
condom use, distribute free condoms, and encourage everyone to either start or continue using
condoms consistently.

AHF Philippines’ ICD event will feature a series of activities emphasizing the importance of safe sex
practices, promoting consistent condom usage, and providing educational resources on sexual health.
The various events hope to reach over 10,000 people, including a Condom Distribution Drive that
involves refilling condom dispensers at partner locations, a Condom Workshop Booth conducting
educational workshops on safe sex practices, a Condom-Themed Photo Booth engaging participants
in a fun and educational experience, and spreading awareness on social media using the official
hashtag, #ICD2024. Additionally, Love (the Condom Mascot) will be on tour, helping promote safe sex
through a mascot at various outreach events and much more!

Ms. Nenet L. Ortega, the Country Manager of AHF Philippines, shared that according to the World
Health Organization, over 1 million people globally acquire an STI every day, and thanks to condoms,
117 million new HIV infections have been averted since 1990. This is why, on ICD and beyond, the
world must remember—condoms are safe, sexy, and essential to ending HIV/AIDS.

Observed annually on February 13, International Condom Day gives people worldwide the chance to
receive free condoms and essential information about proper condom use and other sexual health
issues. On ICD 2024, we urge everyone worldwide to remember that condoms save lives and remain
the best option for preventing HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unplanned pregnancies.
For more information on this initiative, contact Ms. Nenet L. Ortega of AHF Philippines at 01975121956.
