Hindustan Latex Ltd., (HLL), has launched the Female Condom (FC) in India. It has partnered with a US health company called –The Female Health Company to market// their female condoms in India under the brand name –Confidom.

HLL has taken two years of research before being able to launch the condom in India. It is expected to sell approx. 500,000 units in the first year. A pair of Confidom will cost Rs.250/-.

To popularize the product the Government has already placed an order for 500,000 condoms that will be distributed either free or at a subsidized price of Rs.5 per piece to the sex workers.

HLL has a Women’s Health Care Pharma Division that takes care of reproductive health care needs of women. It has opened chain of hospitals for this purpose called – Life Spring Hospitals.
