Female and Male Condoms: Men and Women Sharing Responsibility for Prevention

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

10:00am - 11:30am

Church Center for the United Nations, 11th Floor 777 United Nations Plaza
New York, NY

When it comes to preventing HIV and unintended pregnancy, female and male condoms are the only life-saving, dual protection technologies that are effective and available now. While female condoms are designed for women to initiate, partner negotiation remains essential. Additionally, we should not underestimate women's ability to initiate and negotiate the use of male condoms. This panel of practitioners and experts will discuss the roles and shared responsibilities of both men and women when it comes to female and male condoms.

Mitchell Warren
Executive Director, AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition (AVAC)

Edinah Masiyiwa
Executive Director, Women's Action Group - Zimbabwe

Bidia Deperthes
Technical Advisor on Comprehensive Condom Programming, UNFPA

Serra Sippel
Executive Director, Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE)

Co-sponsors: Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition (AVAC), World YWCA, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and members of the Comprehensive Condom Programming (CCP) Civil Society Advocacy Working Group.
