CHANGE’s new publication, Female Condoms and US Foreign Assistance: An Unfinished Imperative for Women’s Health, offers fresh insight into why women still do not have widespread access to this vital HIV/STI and pregnancy prevention tool and what can be done to increase global access.

The report specifically examines recent developments in US government financial and policy support for international female condom procurement, distribution, and programing.

While the US government is a leader among donors in supporting female condoms, Washington-based policies, procedures, and funding restrictions continue to impede meaningful scale-up of investment.

The report offers in-depth country case studies and concrete recommendations for the US government to remove barriers that have denied access to female condoms, and to ensure stronger US support in the future.
