Free condoms go to sexually active elderly to halt rising rate of STIs

26 February 2019 – Care Home News

Pensioners are to be given free condoms to stem the rising rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) amongst the elderly population.

A campaign named ‘Jiggle, Wiggle’ is targeting older people across Derbyshire, where the NHS will give out condoms at GP surgeries and other local venues.

Statistics from Public Health England reveal a 25% increase in people aged over 65 diagnosed with gonorrhea in 2017 compared to the year before.
