Kenya withdraws condom advert21st March 2013
An outcry from religious leaders in Kenya has seen the withdrawal of a TV advertisement promoting condom use in the country.
The government-sponsored advert shows, a woman in an extra-marital affair being advised to use condoms but Christian and Muslim clerics have protested and said the advert encouraged infidelity, rather than safe sex to curb HIV/Aids. Health official Peter Cherutich told the BBC that the advert had been launched because up to 30% of married couples had other partners in a country where 1.6 million people out of a population of 41.6 million are living with HIV.
