Bulk Procurers of Female Condoms

 

A large proportion of the global supply of female condoms is handled by a handful of bulk purchasers or major funders. These organisations, working predominantly in the public sector, supply condoms on the behalf of governments or programmes and, by buying in large quantities, can often secure significant savings in terms of purchasing price.

Below is a brief summary of the biggest such organisations (listed in alphabetical order). If other companies wish to be mentioned here, please contact i+solutions.
