Free condom programs for select locations
Two free condom programs have recently launched.
In New York City there is an app for that. An app from the New York City Health Department uses GPS information from a users smartphone to let the user know where the nearest of it’s 1,000 vendors are to get free condoms. The app itself is free and has been downloaded over 25,000 times.
In California there is a new program called The Condom Access Project which allows people ages 12-19 to order a free package of condoms, lubricant, and health brochures. These packages are mailed in a nondescript envelope. The program is run through the California Family Health Council and supported by the California Department of Public Health’s STD Control Branch.
