Brazilians to Get 1.2 Bi Free Condoms from Government in 2009, a World Record

Brazil condom ad: I'm going with this garment The Ministry of Health of Brazil announced that it will purchase 1.2 billion condoms next year for the country's national program against AIDS, according to Brazilian media reports.

The ministry informed that it would be "the largest purchase of condoms in world history." Last year, Brazil's Health Ministry bought 406 million condoms.

Brazil, Latin America's most populated country has an estimated population of 190 million, many of them devout Catholics. The condoms program is based on United Nations recommendations.

The first batch of condoms will be delivered in February and passed on to government health institutions and educational facilities in the largest cities throughout the country.

The ministry said condoms are to be distributed free of charge. Some of them will also be made available in tourist areas during the annual Carnaval in February, one of the world's largest people's celebration.

According to UN figures, there are over 33 million AIDS-infected people in the world with 1.6 million in Latin America, half of them in Brazil. Mexico is a distant second, with 200,000 AIDS-infected people reported among its population of 108 million.

    and how many will be used the right way.
    to just toss them out along the prade road is not putting them in the hands of
    the right people .

    most turn into baloons by all some are stuffed with drugs and stuffed in
    some bodie orfice to be sold later.

    how about birth control pills ?
    the morning after pill

    Another WORLD RECORD….BRAZILIAN LIE !
    iN 2005…Brazil Government announced with BIG FANFARE the purchase of 1 billion condoms…A WORLD RECORD !
    IN 2006…Brazil Government announced with BIG FANFARE the purchase of 1,5 billion condoms…A WORLD RECORD !

    Of course and as usual, the government insisted they BOUGHT AND GAVE FREE these condoms.

    Then the person in charge of the program said…NO WAY….BRAZIL COULD PRODUCE SUCH QUANTITY…AND THE
    GIVEN QUANTITY COULD ONLY BE AROUND 500 MILLIONS !!!!!

    Somewhat proven in the article stating ” Last year, Brazil’s Health Ministry bought 406 million condoms.”
    500 millions was already an over generous estimate.

    And now Brazil Government is WITH BIG FANFARE AGAIN going to buy 1,2 billion condoms, when the GOVERNMENT production capacity is ONE THIRD !!!!!!

    Welll….this reminds me that……cheaters always cheat, liars always lie, and hider always hide.
    And it also reminds me……NEVER EVER TRUST A BRAZILIAN !!!!!

    Once more : WHO CAN PROVE ME WRONG ?

    LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH !
