Why International Condom Day is Celebrated Before Valentine’s Day
People all around the world are celebrating International condom day on the 13th of February, a day before Valentine’s day. This annual event is celebrated to encourage people to practice safe sex and sensitize them to use condoms to protect them from contracting Sexually Transmitted Infections.
It is marked with campaigns and free distribution of condoms. International Condoms Day has made a significant move in curbing the spread of HIV/AIDS. Condoms’ role in fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS remains vital. According to the latest studies, consistent condom use can reduce the risk of contracting the disease by 80%.
According to AFEW, the particular date was set because it is a day of love, and intimacy and a perfect time to talk about using condoms.
You can celebrate this significant day, by handing out free condoms in order to raise awareness about the need to wear condoms during sexual intercourse. You can do this by hosting a condom party and talking to people about the use of condoms in a relaxed atmosphere.
Make sure you carry plenty of condoms to make sure that people have access to this form of protection. As we join the world in celebrating international condom day we hope that our efforts in spreading vital information on using condoms will help curb the spread of HIV/AIDS and STIs.
