UK donates money to SA for condoms

9th March 2010

The Department for International Development in the UK has announced it has given £1 million to South Africa to purchase condoms.

The move is intended to help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS in the country. South Africa has said it needs one billion condoms in 2010 because of the high number of tourists visiting the country for the World Cup. South African medical official Victor Ramathesele said: "There's going to be a large number of people who will be descending on to the country. There's going to be a spirit of festivity and... there could be a more than usual demand for measures such as condoms."
