Govt distributes 1 million condoms to homosexuals

17 February 2016, 11:40

Mombasa - Kenya Medical Supplies Authority has distributed 1.2 million condoms to homosexuals in the coastal region.

According to National Aids and Sexually Transmitted Control Programme (Nascop), a total of 15 million condoms were distributed to vulnerable groups in Mtwapa, Kwale and Mombasa between October 2015 and January 2016.

Female prostitutes and injecting drug users also benefited from the contraceptive programme, Standard reports.

Despite being illegal in Kenya, homosexuality is still rampant.

Reports indicate that two thirds of male sex workers lead double sexual lives, with majority of them living in hiding for fear of violence.

According to the National AIDS Control Council (NACC) and Nascop, HIV prevalence among gay men in Kenya stands at 18 percent, with a wide variation of between 12 percent and 43 percent across different towns.

It is estimated that there are over 30 000 gay men across Kenya, with majority of them being in Mombasa, Nairobi and Kisumu.
