LifeStyles donates over R2m worth of contraceptives to Dis-Chem Foundation

Global leader in the sexual wellness sector, LifeStyles Healthcare, has donated more than R2m worth of LifeStyles Condoms to the Dis-Chem Foundation.“We are so delighted with this generous donation, which will form a pivotal part of sex education in communities across the country, “said Sherry Saltzman, Dis-Chem Foundation Head. The foundation will be distributing the condoms to various NGO’s across South Africa.

Dr Mpumi Zungu, Director of HIV/STI and TB at the Human Sciences Research Council said reports have shown that condom use is declining among young South Africans, with just 39% of the population aged 15 and over, using condoms during sexual encounters. This has contributed to an estimated 504,803 learners being identified as having various sexual health-related barriers to learning and being referred for treatment.

CEO of Lifestyles,Jeyan Heper says “Globally, more than a million people contract an STD every day. The rates are even higher when one looks at millennials. Some of these STDs can also increase the risk of HIV infection. Moreover, Jason Frichol, Managing Director of ACDOCO SA explained that high-quality condoms are an effective solution to prevent unintended pregnancies too.
