Brazilian health officials have kicked off an AIDS awareness campaign and will hand out 55 million condoms during the annual Carnival festival that begins next week.

A new television ad features a talking condom that loudly reminds young people to take him along when they go out to party.

Health Minister Jose Temporao said Saturday that this year’s campaign is focusing on educating young women and young gay men to use protection.

The slogan is: “The condom. For love, passion or just sex. Always use it.”

Last year the government distributed nearly 500 million free condoms throughout Brazil, or an average 2.6 condoms for every citizen.

The government hasn’t said how many will be handed out this year.

How do you think we could inspire our federal government to make free condoms available for everyone in our country?
