Health - February is STI/Condom Month

In today's show, we spoke to Naeema Hoosain - Assistant Director for STIs and Barrier Methods at the Western Cape Health Department. We were talking about the importance of STI/Condom Month. February is STI/Condom Month. This initiative was launched in February 2004 by the Department of Health under the leadership of the late Manto Tshabala–Msimang to bring to light the importance of safe sexual practices through the use of condoms and particularly emphasizing the responsibility in preventing the transmission of STIs and HIV/AIDS. If you want more information you can go to your nearest hospital or clinic alternatively contact 0800 012 322.
