“Stop replacing condoms with pills” – Dr Stephen Ayisi-Addo

The director of the National STI and HIV/AIDS Control Program (NACP) in Ghana, Dr. Stephen Ayisi-Addo, advised young people to refrain from replacing the use of condoms with emergency contraceptives.

Dr. Stephen Ayisi-Addo said it was important the youth used contraception correctly, consistently and continuously if they want to be protected from HIV and unwanted pregnancies.

He said sexually active women can prevent pregnancies by using contraception but not HIV.

“So, at every point in time when you are using a contraceptive, it is good to use the barrier method as well,” he advised.
