Army Launches Its Own Condom For Protection

Friday, 5 October 2018

Uganda’s army has launched its own brand of condoms, named after the Swahili word for “protection”, to help prevent soldiers contract HIV.

A soldier cannot defend his country if he “does not ensure that he’s safe”, said Chief of Staff Brig Leopold Kyanda at the launch of the Ulinzi condom.

Nearly 6% of Ugandan adults are living with HIV but strides have been made in reducing the number of new infections.

In the past, the country’s army was known to have a high infection rate.

The Ulinzi condom, which comes in a camouflage packet, should help stop soldiers bringing HIV back home after a tour of duty, said the ministry of health’s Vastha Kibirige.
