A great article by Ryan Graff of Northwestern University’s Medill Reports reports that female condom sales are on the rise, and, according to the condom’s manufacturer Female Health Co., the future looks bright. With the increased funding for HIV/AIDS programs seen under the Bush Administration, prophylactic sales are on the rise.
Graff writes, “The worldwide budget for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS has ballooned – from $4 billion in 2004 to $10 billion in 2007. And things may be getting better. Last summer the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief committed $48 billion to AIDS relief over the next five years.”
