World Contraception Day

On  the  16th of  September,  2013,  the  Center  for  Women’s  Health   and Adolescents’ Development (CWHAD), in collaboration with the Society for Family Health (SFH), organized a one-day community outreach to celebrate the ”Global Female Condom Day”- a day set aside to celebrate the only dual protection for females in the prevention of pregnancy and STIs. The event took place along Education bus stop, Mile one (1), Diobu, Port Harcourt. Most of the participants were amazed by the interesting module. Specifically, the practical use of the female condom was demonstrated by trained facilitators from SFH, and counseling on HIV prevention and testing were offered to those who sought for it. Samples of the male and female condoms as well as other IEC materials were distributed to the participants. The participants received the program very well. It was indeed a successful outing!
