The African Christian Democratic Party has welcomed Parliament’s STI/Condom Awareness Week. 

ACDP MP Cheryllyn Dudley has called on the Minister of both Social Development and Health to strengthen partnerships to provide community access to programmes on STI’s and available support. 

Dudley added that educating employees lessens the risks of sexual infections and unplanned pregnancy.

“While HIV/AIDS and TB awareness has increased far fewer warnings about other sexually transmitted infections are noticeable.” Dudley said

She also said The ACDP has always cautioned against promoting condoms as the ultimate solution to HIV and STI’s however we accept that they are a necessary aspect of managing the situation people find themselves in.

She concluded by saying the ACDP stresses the importance of a consistent message encouraging young people to commit to delaying sexual activity for as long as possible.
