The Family Planning Association (FPA) is to set up condom dispenser machines at national level starting from Colombo, Executive Director, FPA, Thushara Agus said last week.
Accordingly, 15 dispenser machines are to be installed at selected locations, where underage children would not have access.
Dr. Agus told Nation the programme will be done as a collaborative project by the FPA and the National STD and AIDS Control Programme (NSACP). “Adults could feed their phone numbers to this machine and obtain a condom,” she said.
This project could be expanded to other districts at national level to create awareness to use of condoms at national level.
