New York Health Department Distributes Five Million Condoms in a Month

Organizations or venues can request an unlimited supply of condoms at no cost through an online ordering system set up by the city health department.

According to the Times, the health department last year worked with 877 businesses, health clinics, advocacy groups and other organizations to distribute 18 million condoms.

Some of the groups asked by the health department to participate distributed about one million of the five million condoms, the AP/Long Island Newsday reports. Frieden in a statement called the program a "sensation," adding, "Hundreds of community organizations are signing up to give out free condoms, many f
