Increasing condom availability ensures a comprehensive prevention approach and helps decrease the transmission of HIV/AIDS. To address gaps in condom availability, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), through its global health programs, assists countries by supporting condom programming strategies that address crucial supply and demand issues. USAID’s global supply chain projects have been the primary procurement agents for male and female condoms and lubricants. Between fiscal year (FY) 2016 and 2021, with funding mainly from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)-Condom Fund, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project procured a total value of $135.3 million of condoms and lubricants, consisting of male condoms, female condoms, and lubricants for 59 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) regions. These commodities are provided at no cost to these countries, enabling millions of poor and vulnerable people to access the products at no cost or at highly subsidized prices.
Note: This report captures information for male condoms, female condoms and lubricant procurements for the entire Agency, whereas the Contraceptive and Condoms Report only examines male condoms, female condoms and lubricants procured with Family Planning/Reproductive Health funding.
