Euro fans get free condoms

Polish health officials say they will distribute free condoms to hundreds of thousands of fans attending Euro 2012 as part of a safe sex campaign.

Officials say the ‘Fair Play’ campaign advocating the use of condoms will be held in all four Euro 2012 cities in the country.

Deputy Health Minister Aleksander Soplinski said yesterday that some 150,000 free kits of condoms and leaflets will be distributed in fan zones to alert them to the health hazards of casual sex, such as AIDS and other diseases. The leaflets — in Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, English, German and Spanish — will advise on the use of condoms. The tournament kicks off June 8 in Warsaw.
