H. Sharing of resources within the public and private sector

In countries that have successfully launched the female condom within the region, a key strategy was to maintain consistency throughout the public and private sector campaigns. This included ensuring consistent training, a consistent product designator and approach to the product (as a dual method of protection) as well as a joint launch. Coordination provides one national message about the product and ensures consistency in defining the product in both the public and private sector.
