Today, Pathfinder International celebrates Global Female Condom Day with educational events and advocacy around the world that brings a heightened focus on a still-obscure tool in women’s sexual and reproductive health.

Since 2014, Pathfinder has partnered with The Female Health Company, provider of the FC2 female condom, to increase access to the female condom in five countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Tanzania.

These condoms, approved by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, provide women more control over their sexual and reproductive health both as protection from sexually transmitted infections and powerful autonomy for women in family planning.

“Female condoms are power,” said Pathfinder. “Female condoms are unique—they give women the ability to control their future by putting the power in their hands to prevent both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.” 

Pathfinder is showcasing the female condom through events and trainings around the world, including the following:

Pathfinder is committed to increasing awareness and availability of female condoms. Today is just one day to step up that fight.
