Durban II Declaration 2009

Durban II Declaration (DIID) at the 4th Southern African AIDS Conference in Durban South Africa, 31 March - 3 April 2009.

The DIID states that, “Female condoms have been shown to be safe and effective at preventing HIV and STIs, but that the current demand far exceeds the supply.”

The DIID states the following commitments for female condoms:
1. Increasing the supply of female condoms to meet the demand, monitoring the uptake of female condoms, and developing a long-term female condom distribution plan in all provinces;
2. Expanding the range of female condoms made available;
3. Promoting the use of female condoms, especially among young women;
4. Advocating for a reduction in the cost of female condoms.
