The REAL Condom Challenge

$8,000 goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Across the world, rates of STIs have continued to climb. Just last year the WHO found over 1 million pregnant women that tested positive for syphilis. Just looking at the rates in the US, in 2016 the CDC had some disturbing numbers reported to them. These included 27,814 cases of syphilis, 468,514 cases of gonorrhea, and 1,598,354 cases of chlamydia.  In BC alone, in 2014, we had some shockingly high rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. These rates have continued to rise steadily year to year. 

So all this sounds really bad but let's just think about this for a second... these numbers are based on how many people have actually gotten tested. So we don't actually have a full picture of what the full rates actually look like... According to the last US census, only about 12% of the population got tested. Estimated cost of STIs in the US is roughly 16 billion dollars annually. CDC estimates undiagnosed STIs causes roughly 24,000 women to become infertile each year. HPV is responsible for approximately 31,500 cases of cancer every year. 

STIs can have some serious impacts like causing infertility, cancer, and death. All of these terrible things can be stopped by a magical latex, or latex-free, barrier. We need to reduce the embarrassment, stigma, awkwardness, discomfort, and negative feelings people have about condoms! Join the fight to raise awareness!
