[QUOTE]An international coalition of organizations that represent Latin American women and Latina women in the United States is demanding increased access to the female condom as an essential strategy to fight HIV/AIDS.
The 37-member coalition, which includes 28 organizations from 11 Latin American nations and 9 Latina advocacy and service organizations from the U.S., has released a World AIDS Day statement that calls on governments and international donors to step up their investment in programs that distribute the female condom and educate women and men on its use.
I personally wish that female condoms were more readily available as well. I've never seen them at Wal-Mart or the local pharmacy before (although I've never really done a thorough search for them either I've been in that area of the stores several times) and I know that my local family planning clinic doesn't offer them. I would love to see them more readily available.
