Provide Condoms at University

217 Signatures Goal: 250

Maltese youths have one of the lowest rates of safe-sex in Europe. This is primarily because many do not understand the importance of safe sex through the use of contraceptives such as condoms. Safe sex is not just contraception; it also includes protection from STIs (sexually transmitted infections), which are serious infections that cause much suffering. Some STIs cause death, e.g. AIDS. Condoms provide contraception and protection against most STIs, including AIDS. When used correctly, condoms are 98% effective. Condoms should be used by both heterosexuals and homosexuals, during both vaginal and anal sex, and whether the partners trust each other or not. A petition is necessary since past attempts to introduce a condom machine at the University of Malta were met with resistance. This approach is concomitant with the low rate of safe sex among Maltese youths. At present, there are no condom machines on the University of Malta campus. Condoms should be readily available for students at the University of Malta through an easily accessible condom machine on campus.
