Kabale district health department Concerned about Reduction of condom use

KABALE- Authorities from Kabale district health department are concerned about the reduction in the number of men and women using condoms in the district.

According to statistics from the district health department, 117 female condoms were used compared to 13,746 male one for the period between January and August 2020. The numbers were recorded across public health facilities in the district.

Statistics indicate that 106 female condoms were used from January to
March, one female condom was used from April to June and 10 others from July to August this year.

10,726 male condoms were used between January and March, 2,499 used between April and June while 521 condoms were consumed between July and August.

The acting Kabale District Health Officer Alfred Besigensi told our reporter that the number of males and females using condoms has reduced compared to last year where over 150 females and 15746 male condoms were used between January and August.

Besigensi blamed this tendency to the increasing teenage pregnancies in the district since condoms would help the gender from getting unwanted pregnancies.

He also said unprotected sex poses the partners to sexual transmitted diseases such as HIV/AID hence asking political and religious leaders to encourage the public to embrace use of condoms to curtail the increased spread of sexually transmitted infections.

Kabale district has registered 2,618 cases of teenage pregnancies in the last seven months. The cases were registered across both private and government health facilities between January and July this year from a total of 17,309 of pregnancies.
