The Condomize Campaign, an initiative of the United Nations Population Fund and the Comprehensive Condom Programming Interagency Task Team, launched this summer in Vienna at AIDS 2010.  As a campaign, our goals are to destigmatize condoms and to give people around the world access to quality condoms when they need them and where they feel most comfortable.

"Good morning, AIDS 2010 delegates!"

"Good morning, AIDS 2010 delegates!"

If you were inside the main conference at AIDS 2010 (or searching online afterward), then these images will be a very familiar sight 😉 For 12 hours a day on each day of the conference, I was amplified while welcoming the delegates and orienting them to my corner of the world.  Inside The Condomize Zone, which was approximately 25 meters in length, delegates found:

Condom Art Pin Making
Flavored lubricant tasting (yes, that’s right)
Displays of male condoms, female condoms, dental dams, finger cots and additional safer sex supplies
Over 100 condoms unrolled and inflated, so visitors could take a look at just some of the different sizes, shapes, colors, textures and flavors available around the world
And me, educating about all of the above!
