Faith-based organizations—particularly Catholic agencies, which the Vatican claims provides 30 percent of AIDS care in Africa and 25 percent globally—take taxpayer money to provide healthcare services to the neediest communities throughout the world, but sometimes pick and choose who to help and which services to offer. Some of these providers deny people condoms, sexuality education, needle exchange programs, and other proven methods to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS, and discriminate against some individuals, like gay men, sex workers or those who have sex outside of marriage.

Watch this short film to find out what you can do to stop this and support the campaign by writing a letter to international development agencies.


Condoms4Life is an unprecedented worldwide public education effort to raise public awareness about the devastating effect of the bishops’ ban on condoms.
