Condom Distribution

The Family Planning Program has a free male condom distribution service we call the "Brown Bag Program".

This is a cooperative effort of the Kentucky Family Planning and Sexually Transmitted Disease Programs. The "Brown Bag Program" is an anonymous condom distribution program developed primarily to overcome the barriers of condom usage such as cost, embarrassment and misunderstanding by adolescents of their rights regarding condom purchase.

Nine condoms are placed in a small brown bag, along with a pamphlet, How to Use a Condom and literature on STDs. Emphasis is placed on permitting individuals to pick up a bag without requiring registration, counseling or discussion. The main objective is to decrease pregnancies as well as STDs for those persons who are already sexually active. The brown bags are in an easily accessible place in the waiting rooms at various community locations.

Another program we offer is the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Condom Distribution Program. Local businesses or community agencies, with a large volume of "young" clientele, can participate by agreeing to a few simple guidelines. They will receive free condoms and other Teen Pregnancy Prevention information to display in an "open" area at their site.

The funding for this program comes through "Teen Initiatives" Family Planning.
