PSI Country Representative Gabriel Ganci, when making his speech said the new condom was part of the Organisations Social Marketing Program.
National Aids Council Director, Peter Bire said according to the position statement by UNHPA and WHO condoms, these is an effective way to reduce the spread of HIV and AIDS and must be promoted.
