Condom Shortage Hits Mash West

A critical shortage of free con_doms is looming in Mashonaland West, with only 31 boxes left for the whole province, amid reports that the effective distribution of the protective sheath was lacking in the country.

The development has raised concern among healthcare workers and pressure groups who fear that this could reverse gains made in the fight against the spread of HIV, while increasing the chances of unplanned pregnancies.

National Pharmaceutical Company provincial manager for Mashonaland West Mr Mark Ncube recently revealed at a Second Quarter Review meeting held in Chinhoyi that the province was left with 31 boxes of co_ndoms.

“We have at least 31 boxes of condom_s in stock, whereas unconfirmed figures of contraceptive pills also indicate that they are in short supply,” he said.

According to the Public Sector Acceptability report, Zimbabwe has a significant comprehensive condom programme, in which 110 million male cond_oms and five million female condo_ms are sold and distributed annually.
