There is increased importation of condoms by the private sector in the country, the National Drug Authority-NDA has revealed.
Statistics from NDA show an increase in the importation of condoms from 154 million in 2015 to 175 million in 2016. This number is estimated to have increased to 180 million condoms this year in the private sector. The NDA Secretary, Donna Kusemererwa attributes the increase to the willingness by users to buy the condoms as opposed to relying on those distributed by government.
The Coordinator HIV Prevention, Uganda AIDS Commission, Dr. Carol Nakazi says that while more brands of condoms are available on the market, most people use them to prevent pregnancies rather than HIV.
