The project is being implemented in the Greater Accra, Central, Western and Ashanti regions of Ghana.
The project aim is to have a baseline assessment document of FC2 procurement and programme, galvanized support for the project through advocacy with three key stakeholders, distribute 400,000 FC and engage the media houses to promote female condom advocacy and programmes and build the capacity of 50 SWAA members as trainer of trainers and 500 community members as peer educators and non-traditional FC2 outlets to promote its use among women.
