Brazil National Team Condoms & New Brazilian Public Health CampaignBased on this story Brazil appears to be taking very seriously the issue of condom usage. At this point in 2002 it seems highly unlikely we'll see such a blunt and clear eyed campaign dealing with homosexual sex and condom usage within the United States during prime time broadcasts. With the high rate of STI transmission in Brazil it's no wonder that the Health Ministry gives out upwards of 20 million condoms during Carnival, pays for AIDS drugs, and attempts to increase STI awareness through porn.
In Brazil a condom manufacturer named Prudence has come out with a special printing of condoms in the yellow and green colors of the Brazilian team at the World Cup. Back in February condoms branded with all the biggest soccer teams in Brazil went on sale.
