Return on investment
The analysis shows that investing in female condoms has a high Return of Investment (ROI); cost savings to the health system in the four analysed countries, and direct productivity losses averted for these countries’ economies.
By making a variety of female condoms available and by increasing awareness and knowledge on how to use this dual prevention method, more women and men will be able to protect themselves from STIs and unintended pregnancies.
Contrary to what is sometimes heard, investing in female condom procurement and programming is worth it; every dollar spent comes back as health and economic benefits for the women and men using them and the society they live in.
Call for action
Using this Business Case for Female Condoms, UAFC calls upon Ministries of Health, implementing organisations and donor agencies to step up the pace and invest in female condoms. It is worth it!
The Business Case was financially supported by French NGO Equilibres et populations.
