Ugandan women abandon condoms

18 March 2015, 10:20 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Ugandan women gave complained against female condoms (femidoms) saying they make sex unpleasant.

''We have carried out a research in the whole country and discovered that most women find it hard to use them,'' said Jane Nafula, a women's leader in Kampala.

She said that women in different parts of the country had complained to their MPs about it and want them improved.

"They make a lot of noise during sex. They are also not smooth and make sex uncomfortable,'' said Gloria Nankya.

In response, members of parliament on the parliamentary committee on HIV/AIDs, on Tuesday called for the review of the female condom which has been widely rejected by women.

Members of the committee chaired by the woman MP for Manafwa district, Sarah Netasile, are concerned that a number of women have abandoned the use of female condoms and are relying on men to put on theirs, which MPs say could be the reason for increase in HIV spread.

The former vice president, who is also the MP for Busiro North Proffesor Gilbert Balibaseka Bukenya, said: ''The manufacturers of female condoms should redesign them so that they can become sex friendly since it’s the safest method of preventing HIV /AIDs among women.''

Bukenya also said that the government should investigate why the landing sites in Buganda and Busoga have the high HIV prevalence rate compared to the landing sites in northern Uganda.

The MP for Rukungiri municipality, Roland Mugume, wants the condoms improved but also wants the Ministry of Defence to explain the HIV status of the UPDF officers who are always on battle fields and come back without knowing their HIV status.

MPs in this vein resolved to summon the ministry of health and Uganda Aids commission over the issue.
