ICASA 2015
SWAA Ghana was represented at the 18th International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA) held in Zimbabwe.

SWAA-Ghana in collaboration with Ghana AIDS Commission and PPAG marked the Global Female Condom Day on the theme ``Dance For Demand” on 19th September, 2014 at Mantse Agbonaa in James Town. The program began with a film show and a talk on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) which was facilitated by Mrs. Sandra Amankwaa of Hope For Future Generations. She stressed on the need for individuals who are sexually active to practice safe sex by using the female condom to prevent STI and unwanted pregnancies. She introduced the female condom and explained how it works. This was followed by a dance and demonstration of the female condom by the Young and Wise troop of PPAG.

Community members were given the opportunity to participate in the dance and the demonstration of the FC and prizes were awarded to best dancers. It was realized that some community members were shy to come to the venue so the programme team went into the community to talk and distribute the FC. A total of 1,820 pieces of condoms were distributed and four community members volunteered to be FC outlets for SWAA.
