2 Take Actin The Center fr Health and Gender Equity, Wrld YWCA, and UNFPA c-facilitated Expanding Access t Female Cndms thrugh Strategic Partnerships and Infrmed Advcacy, a skills-building wrkshp n female cndms. The wrkshp prvided an pprtunity fr attendees t learn abut female cndm prducts, and discussed key cmpnents fr female cndm advcacy. The Preventin Nw! Campaign press cnference featured CHANGE, the Universal Access t Female Cndms Jint Prgram, a partnership f Dutch NGOs and the Netherlands Ministry f Freign Affairs (DGIS), the Sciety fr Wmen and AIDS in Africa (SWAA), and the United Natins Ppulatin Fund (UNFPA). The rganizatins called n gvernments and internatinal dnr agencies t prvide greater access t female cndms t slw the spread f HIV. CHANGE s reprt abut U.S. supprt fr the prcurement, distributin, and prgramming f female cndms, Saving Lives Nw is available at Visit t dwnlad Saving Lives Nw and jin the Preventin Nw! Campaign. Presentatin: Lucie van Mens, crdinatr f the Universal Access t Female Cndms Jint Prgramme, Oxfam-Nvib (The Netherlands): The Dutch Jint Prgramme fr Universal Access t Female Cndms Barriers t Widespread Use f the Female Cndm The female cndm is priced significantly higher than the male cndm, and fr ppulatins with lwer incme levels, this is a majr barrier. A lack f prduct variety may dissuade peple frm trying female cndms. Effrts t prmte the female cndm suffer frm a lack f large-scale prgramming, especially because prgramming csts are higher than fr the male cndm, a result f a lwer baseline f awareness and higher price f the cmmdity. Stck-uts during and after prgramming further perpetuate prblems in the prmtin f a cmmdity that is less well-knwn. The lack f supply chain reliability means that peple quickly lse interest in the prduct. Cmpnents f the UAFC Jint Prgramme The Jint Prgramme is an initiative f OXFAM- NOVIB and ther rganizatins with the gal f making the female cndm available at an affrdable and sustainable price and prmting freedm f chice fr wmen arund the wrld with regard t preventin f pregnancy and STIs. The prgram cnducts research and develpment; pilt prgrams are currently underway in Nigeria and Camern and the prgram will sn be expanding t ne ther cuntry in suthern Africa. The prgram is an pprtunity t jin all f the different cmpnents f female cndm advcacy t maximize the efficacy and reach f marketing and prmtin effrts. The prgram attempts t defuse and test miscnceptins abut the lack f demand fr the female cndm. Only after a ppulatin has been expsed t utreach and prgramming can demand be accurately assessed.

3 The prgram als cnducts advcacy activities which target decisin-makers and dnrs because new investment is needed. Objectives f UAFC Jint Prgramme: The ultimate gal is t decrease the price fr cnsumers f the female cndm and expand the pregnancy and STI preventin ptins currently available. The prgram will wrk tward this gal by: Encuraging the develpment f new prducts (quality, cmfrt, new variatins etc.). Scaling up the use f the female cndm thrugh its pilt prgrams. Encuraging decisin-makers and imprtant dnrs t invest in the female cndm. Presentatin: Bidia Deperthes, HIV/AIDS Technical Advisr fr Cmprehensive Cndm Prgramming, UNFPA: The UNFPA Glbal Female Cndm Initiative: The Right f Wmen and Adlescents t Remain HIV-free The Prgram Gals UNFPA is the lead UN agency in activities arund the prmtin f male and female cndms. In partnership with civil sciety grups, nn-gvernmental and faith-based rganizatins, the private sectr, lcal cmmunities, dnrs, natinal gvernment, and UN agencies, UNFPA encurages gvernments t prmte and advcate fr gender-equitable nrms and the engagement f wmen. Build cmmunities free frm gender-based vilence, stigma, discriminatin, early marriage and sexual explitatin f wmen and adlescents. Expand access t female cndms as a methd f prtectin against bth pregnancy and STIs. Integrate female cndm prgramming as an essential part f natinal HIV/AIDS plicy guidelines and reprductive health prgramming in every cuntry. Lay the scial and plitical fundatin fr ther female-initiated preventin ptins. Use the expertise f the UN t prvide guidance t cuntries and NGOs wrking tgether t prmte family planning ptins. Reduce the number f unprtected sex acts (which in sme places can be as high as 90 percent f all sex acts) by prmting cmprehensive prgrams. Results Thrugh cllabratin with UNAIDS, the United Kingdm s Department fr Internatinal Develpment (DfID), KfW (a German gvernment-wned develpment bank), Ppulatin Services Internatinal (PSI), the Internatinal Planned Parenthd Fundatin (IPPF), DKT Internatinal, the UN Develpment Prgram (UNDP), the U.S. Center fr Disease Cntrl (CDC), the Hewlett Fundatin, and thers, the UNFPA has helped increase availability f and investment in female cndms.

4 Since 2005, befre the rllut f the Female Cndm Initiative (FCI), dnr supprt has apprximately tripled. Glbal female cndm distributin increased frm less than 15 millin t mre than 27 millin female cndms, an increase f mre than duble. The initiative has encuraged gvernments t distribute female cndms free f charge, and many dnr prgrams nw ffer free female cndms. Strategies and Tactics Strng leadership and crdinatin and significant plitical will at the glbal, natinal, and cmmunity levels is crucial. In many cuntries, demand must cme befre the investment by the gvernment, s the Glbal Female Cndm Initiative makes a big difference in encuraging demand, but als in develping capacity f health trainers and practitiners at the lcal level. Dedicated multidisciplinary natinal cndm teams prvide guidance and supprt t gvernments in develping and mnitring cmprehensive cndm prgramming strategies and implementatin plans. The teams assess the target grups, cst, distributin plans, and fundraising. Capacity develpment wrkshps shw service prviders hw t use the female cndm and emphasize the imprtance f the cmmdity. Awareness-raising and behavir change activities help encurage ppulatins t use the female cndm. Presentatin: Clnel Samuels, crdinatr, Wmen Acrss Differences (Guyana): Prmting Female Cndms thrugh Wmen, Acrss Differences: A Reprt frm the Grund Abut Wmen Acrss Differences (WAD) WAD wrks tward enabling wmen and yuth thrughut Guyana, acrss all ages, ethnicities, and lcatins, t empwer themselves thrugh access t scial and ecnmic resurces. Thrugh its prgrams, WAD is invlved in many initiatives including training, persnal develpment, gender develpment, entrepreneurial develpment, cmmunity mbilizatin, public educatin, sexual reprductive health, cunseling, and disaster preparedness. WAD and its Female Cndm Initiative Three key gvernment agencies are invlved in prmting preventin methds in Guyana: the Ministries f Health, Culture, Yuth, and Sprts, and the Department f Human Services. Many NGOs, civil sciety rganizatins, and health practitiners are als engaged in the prmtin and distributin f female cndms, including WAD. WAD is currently wrking: - in six vulnerable cmmunities, bth rural and urban, with teen educatrs t talk abut planned pregnancy; - with teen mthers (14-19 years ld); - with the indigenus ppulatin at an Amerindian hstel; - with affiliated grups in its cndm prmtin prgram; and - at men s frums and sessins with male partners f its clients. Respnse t Female Cndms in Guyana

5 Wmen in Guyana have had minimal expsure t the female cndm, and thse wh have been expsed have had varying experiences acrss regins and age grups. Guyana has had gd media cverage and supprt frm sme faith-based rganizatins. The female cndm is still very new in sme cmmunities. Experiences frm WAD Successes: Teen mthers and men are increasingly accepting the female cndm. In the target grups, there was widespread sharing and discussin f the female cndm with peers. WAD saw an increase in return visits fr the female cndm, indicating significant uptake f the prduct. Challenges A multiracial and divided sciety; Myths which still exist abut cndms and sex, such as: - Only men can use cndms. - Female cndms are fr yung peple. - Female cndms will expand the vagina. Gender inequality; Difficulty f discussing female cndms with partners; Relatively lw access t female cndms fr the vulnerable ppulatin. Guyana still has a lt f wrk t d t empwer wmen in their relatinships with their partners, but the female cndm is gaining increased acceptance acrss the cuntry.
