The Female Health Company Receives USAID DELIVER PROJECT Order for 6.1 Million Units
Date:2/28/2008

CHICAGO, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Female Health Company (Amex: FHC) announced it has received an order from John Snow, Inc., which implements the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, for the delivery of 6.1 million female condoms (FC) for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) programs.

For many years, USAID has been among the largest international donors of contraceptives and condoms. The Agency developed an operational plan for its HIV/AIDS "expanded response" strategy, which includes the establishment of the Commodity Fund (CF) to centrally-finance male and female condoms for HIV/AIDS programs and to ensure their expedited delivery to countries. Through the Commodity Fund, which began in 2002, USAID provides male and female condoms to Missions for HIV/AIDS prevention activities.

O. B. Parrish, Chairman and CEO of FHC, praised USAID actions stating, "In continuing female condom procurement in 2008, USAID is demonstrating its commitment to supporting HIV/AIDS prevention efforts around the World. This commitment is particularly critical as the Global Community recognizes the increasing numbers of females affected by AIDS." UNAIDS reports that worldwide, 33.2 million people, 15.4 million of which are women aged 15 years and older are now living with HIV. The Global Coalition on Women and AIDS, a UNAIDS Initiative, is calling for more money in AIDS programs that work for women including closing the funding gap for the female condom and microbicides development."
