Public health authorities are increasingly shifting their focus to encouraging HIV testing, safer sex practices and other preventative measures in an effort to slow the spread of the potentially deadly disease.
For example, the San Francisco Department of Public Health is gearing up to launch a new marketing campaign that urges women to take charge of their own sexual health by encouraging more of them to wear female condoms.
Department officials said that the female condom is generally a safe and affordable method for women to reduce their risk of contracting HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. The health department is hoping to spread this message to women in high-risk populations.
"I am very pleased to see such community excitement about the [female condom] being available in our city," said Susan Phillip, MD, director of STD prevention and control at the Department of Public Health. "It is so important to give our communities another good option for taking control of the sexual health."
