Pre-Valentine’s Celebration: International Condom Day

Pre Valentine's Celebration: International Condom Day

Before you celebrate with your sweetheart tomorrow, join us in observing International Condom Day today!

We’re all buying flowers and making dinner reservations to prepare for Valentine’s Day tomorrow, but there’s one more thing we need to add to our lists – a stop at the drugstore.

Today is International Condom Day! The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has set aside this day to help raise awareness about the key role condoms to play in avoiding STDs and accidental pregnancies.

Did you know that we can get free condoms? This interactive map can help us and those we care about find a health center, pharmacy, or other location distributing free condoms in our area.

As we prepare for Valentine’s Day, it’s important to make sure that we put the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones first. Responsible condom usage can help stop the spread of STDs and even the Zika virus!

  • “According to the CDC, 1 in 20 Americans will get infected with hepatitis B (HBV) sometime during their lives.  Hepatitis B is 100 times more infectious than HIV.
  • According to the Center for Disease Control, there are more than 19.7 million new cases of Sexually Transmitted Infections in the U.S. each year.
  • By twelfth grade, 65% of high school students will have engaged in sexual intercourse, and one in five sexually active teens will have had four or more sexual partners.”
  • The use of condoms makes for the only proven method for reducing the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) during sex. 5 billion condoms are used worldwide every year.”
