Government asked to supply condoms in public washrooms

24 October 2015, 16:53 Joseph Njung'eh

Nanyuki - The government has been asked to place condoms in all public washrooms within Laikipia County in order to curb spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

According to a motion tabled in local County Assembly by Tigithi ward representative, Elizabeth Muchiri, all washrooms should have condoms.

The motion is seeking to compel the County Government and National Aids Control Council (NACC) to work together in ensuring there is adequate supply of condoms in the County.

She said the two institutions should jointly fight and develop response mechanisms to sexually transmitted diseases.

She further called for regular testing of HIV/AIDS, a campaign that she said should be spearheaded by the County leadership.

The HIV prevalence rate in the County is alarming since in year 2013, more than 500 adults and over 70 children died of the disease.

According to Kenya HIV County Profiles 2014 report, 9 000 adults and 1 324 children are living with HIV while the prevalence rate is 3.7 percent.

HIV prevalence among women in Laikipia County is higher at 5.3 percent compared to 3.2 percent in men, according to the report.
