New York City health officials on Wednesday unveiled the city's new official condom as part of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's efforts to curb the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, as well as to prevent unintended pregnancies, the AP/Google.com reports (Kugler, AP/Google.com, 2/13). The health department in January 2007 approved a $1.57 million contract to deliver Ansell Healthcare's Lifestyle condoms and packets of lubricant to organizations and venues in the city. The health department will pay Ansell four cents per condom, putting the cost of the program at about $720,000 annually, according to health officials. Officials plan to track the progress of the program through an annual community health survey, which polls 10,000 city residents by telephone. Organizations or venues can request an unlimited supply of condoms at no cost through an online ordering system set up by the health department.
