Condom Vending Machines In South African Schools To Fight HIV, Pregnancies (Pix) by TMKsouth: 7:58pm On Sep 08
The department of basic education in South Africa has made available condom vending machines in some schools in a bid to decrease teenage pregnancies and the incidence of HIV/Aids.

The provision of condoms is one of the services offered in a programme targeting adolescent girls and young women aged 10 to 19.

Working with the department of health, the programme provides a range of services, including HIV testing, emergency contraception when a child is raped, and screening, investigation and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.

Granville Whittle, one of the department’s deputy directors-general, told parliament on Tuesday during a briefing on teenage pregnancies that the programme also provides support for teen parents on how they can take care of their babies.

“Girls don’t drop out because they fall pregnant; they fall pregnant because they dropped out and so schooling is a protective factor,” said Whittle.

“We don’t deny services to boys coming forward to say they want access to services. We provide testing for HIV and condom distribution for boys when they come and ask for them,” he said.

Rape & societal problems


The programme is being offered in districts with a high prevalence of HIV/Aids and teen pregnancies.

“Schools are being encouraged to report pregnancy, particularly those involving children under 14, because that’s rape.”

The deputy minister of basic education, Reginah Mhaule, told parliament that teenage pregnancy was a societal matter.

She said the statistics indicated that “most of these young girls are impregnated at home ... by relatives, by their biological fathers, stepfathers and uncles”.

Figures for national deliveries in facilities by the department of health revealed that 132,612 girls aged 15 to 19 fell pregnant in 2020 and a further 35,209 between January and March this year. A shocking 3,774 girls aged 10-14 years fell pregnant last year and 1,053 in the first three months of this year.

@bolded - it's the same argument about having condom dispensers in prisons. It's happening anyway so you might just as well ensure it happens safely.

U guys like dissing the north angry but you're just as bad. I remember reading that the south has a birthrate double the size of SA. In SA we have 2 to 3 kids on average, southern Nigeria 4 to 6 and the north a bit more than that.

it's not up to that

the south has an average of 4

we were farmers and hunters primarily before colonization
and we are used to at least 3 children
and we take care of them

unlike the north that has an average of 6 and dont take care of the children - now that's the real definition of "breed like rabbits"

Lol, I'm not surprised that happened, you're a pain in the bum grin. This is a government initiative. Remember we have a black government in SA and they control the public schools undecided?

I told u to import whites into Nigeria if u think they're almighty. U can afford it, you're an oil nation.

Abortion is legal in South Africa.

In Nigeria it is not.
It's a major reason for the high rate in southern Nigeria.

There is very little or nothing the government can do to stop teenagers from premarital sex. This development will surely reduces hight rate of HIV infections and unwanted pregnancy...
