  2. Objective • To pilot test easier, more discreet access to condoms through CVMs

  3. CVM Distribution • 73 CVMs Procured • 36 Operational • 34 Need Repair • 3 never installed (DOL/FTZ)

  4. Contd.. • Armed Forces – 20 • Government - 6 (NSACP 1, CMC 2, DOL 3) • NGOs/Private sector - 46 (FPASL 15, PSL 11 ) • UN Compound 1

  5. Methodology for Current Rapid Assessment • Minutes of progress review meetings • Brief Questionnaire on current status • Discussions

  6. Assessment • Positive • Confidentiality/discreet access • Functioning CVMs report steady dispensing of condoms • Smooth supply of condoms (FPASL, PSL, FHB) • Demand for more machines • Partnerships • Dual protection

  7. Armed Forces • Army – steady progress • 4 out of 5 functioning • Dovetailed to UNFPA project • Navy – 4 out of 8 functioning • Airforce – 2 out of 7 (heavy duty machines recommended) • Demand for more machines to be installed in new locations & for replacement of broken machines

  12. Labour Department • Not Installed in the FTZs • BOI not approved

  13. Challenges • Frequent breakdown of machines, No spare parts, no systematic scheme for repairs • Negative perceptions by NGO’s (perceived as a threat to existing social marketing programmes) • Negative attitude by certain authorities eg. BOI, CMC • Sustainability (replacement of CVMs)
