condom distribution scheme

 Sexual Health Services D&G does not offer any direct funding for distribution points. However, the Department will provide a selection of condoms, dams, PTK’s, the Departments sexual health information leaflets and support to distribution points.

Sexual Health D&G will provide sexual health awareness sessions and updates on current sexual health issues.

In becoming a distribution point a decision will have to be made as to how and when condoms etc will be distributed such as: - self service, on request, by post. Once decided, the information should be well publicised and freely available for potential users.

An individual must be identified as the named contact for this service and encouraged to attend sexual health awareness sessions and keep updated on current sexual health issues.

Feedback from the distribution points will be encouraged to allow the Department to monitor and develop the service.

Records will have to be maintained for purpose of evaluation.  Quarterly recording forms to be completed and returned to Department at the end of June, September, December and March even if it is a nil return.

Storage, shelf life and disposal of condoms should be understood and appropriate conditions maintained.

This is partnership working and each partner involved will be encouraged to recognise others unique contribution to this service.
