With the festive season fast approaching and how foreigners would be flying into the country for the Christmas holidays, it is important to be cautious of our sexuality.
One thing that become so normalised during these times is the rate at which unprotected and reckless sex becomes rife amongst the youth wherever they find themselves.
In view of this, the Director-General of the Ghana Aids Commission (GAC), Kyeremeh Atuahene, has underscored the need for men to ensure they have enough condoms on them always.
According to him, having condoms on them wherever they go, could be of help to them in case of emergencies that could lead to contracting HIV or AIDS infections.
In a report filed by Ghanaweb.com, Atuahene claimed that it was necessary for men to guard themselves because, statistics have proven that the virus was mainly spread by men.
He added that using condoms was the most effective way to protect each other from new infections.
Atuahene said this during a working visit to the Ghana National Fire Service to present about 72,000 pieces of lubricated condoms to be distributed to all fire service stations across the country.
He said the commission would as part of the HIV and AIDS awareness month celebration donate condoms and BCC material to all uniform service staff across the country.
This he said, would enable them protect themselves from new HIV infections when they leave home to perform national duties elsewhere.
