The Safe4Now Foundation in the Netherlands has begun a new campaign to distribute cheap condoms to sex industry workers. According to a recent study, 7% of prostitutes in large cities in the Netherlands are infected with HIV and only 82% of all Dutch prostitutes use condoms on a regular basis. Although condoms are necessary in their line of work, most prostitutes have to pay a high price for condoms either through their bosses or by paying the high private consumer price. Safe4Now hopes that if condoms are offered at a reduced price, more prostitutes may be encouraged to use condoms more often. [UPI]
