Assessment of the Retail Environment of Male Condoms in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe
This assessment, which was undertaken by AIDSFree as part of the “20 x 20” condom promotion initiative, explored the retail environment for condoms in five sub-Saharan African countries--Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. This summary report outlines the size and value of the current and potential market for condoms in each of the five countries, including existing infrastructure, regulations, importation, and competing brands.
Review of the History of Price Revisions of Social-Marketed Brands of Male Condoms in Select Countries
In Africa, social-marketed brands of condoms are usually sold at a subsidized price. This review assessed the prices of social-marketed condom brands in five countries—Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Ultimately, almost all brands adjusted their prices to national consumer price indices and gross national incomes across all five countries.

Understanding the Consumer
Expanding Effective Contraceptive Options (EECO) is a USAID-funded project designed to support the introduction of new contraceptive and dual protection methods that will help address method-related reasons for non-use.
Pilots in Zambia, Malawi, Madagascar and Niger will provide women with more choices to prevent unplanned pregnancy, through access to four new product lines: new barrier methods; hormonal intrauterine systems; and a progesterone vaginal ring (PVR). The first of these pilots started in Malawi and Zambia in mid-2014 with the launch of the Woman’s Condom.
In 2015, several condom manufacturers joined donor agencies to form a coalition whose main goal is to provide 20 billion condoms to low and middle-income countries by 2020. Between August and October 2017, AIDSFree conducted research on barriers that prevent condom manufacturers from entering the African market. AIDSFree used a self-administered semi-structured questionnaire and in-depth interviews to collect information. This report summarizes and analyzes the survey's findings.
Condoms remain a key component of evidence-based, high-impact HIV prevention programs. To add to the limited evidence on condom counseling in the context of biomedical interventions, AIDSFree conducted a study that closely examined approaches for providing condom services, and the quality of services, in two Ugandan programs that offer antiretroviral therapy and combination HIV prevention services. This case study summarizes AIDSFree's findings and recommendations.
Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe
Though condom use is now higher than ever before, key gaps remain in countries and in certain populations, where use has stagnated or even decreased. To address these gaps, UNFPA in 2016 spearheaded the creation of the “20 by 20 Initiative,” a multisectoral effort to increase the number of condoms in low-and middle-income countries to 20 billion by 2020. To support this initiative, AIDSFree conducted surveys to assess consumers’ willingness to pay for male condoms in five sub-Saharan countries—Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
In September 2018, the 20 x 20 Condom Initiative coalition met in Bangkok to review findings from several studies that were commissioned by USAID and UNFPA and implemented by AIDSFree. The studies explored willingness to pay for condoms, condom regulatory pathway and condom investment cases in five sub-Saharan African countries.
