The "Condomize" stand is probably the most popular booth at the Global Village. Thousands of people have visited, and collectively taken 850,000 condoms this week at the AIDS Conference. The campaign started 2 years ago at the International AIDS Conference in Vienna, a sex education campaign designed specifically to speak to young people, with both female and male condoms.

The Condom Project, a partnership between the United Nations Population Fund and other partners, promotes accessibility and utilization of condoms to reduce the spread of HIV infections and sexual transmitted infections. By mid-2012, the Global Fund has distributed 3.8 billion condoms worldwide.
