National Women and Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day inspires Jimmyjane/Sir Richard’s promotion

Posted: March 8, 2017

Jimmyjane has announced it is teaming up with Sir Richard’s for a special promotion to shed light on National Women and Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. For the launch of National Women and Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on Friday, March 10th, and through Monday, March 13th, Jimmyjane will be giving away a free 12 pack of Sir Richard’s condoms with every purchase on Jimmyjane.com.

This year marks the 12th annual National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD), which aims to promote awareness on the impact of HIV and AIDS on women. In the United States one in four people living with HIV is female and only about half of those women are receiving care.

The annual NWGHAAD event is meant to educate and bring this issue to the forefront. The special promotion that provides free condoms is aligned with the spirit of this year’s theme – “The Best Defense is a Good Offense”- which focuses on the effective steps women and girls can take to protect themselves.  Jimmyjane hopes not only to support this important cause but spark smart conversations on the topic of HIV/AIDS amongst women.

Sunny Rodgers, the sexual health and wellness expert at Jimmyjane, said: “Male latex condoms, such as Sir Richard’s condoms, are an effective way to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) when having vaginal or anal sex. That’s one of the reasons we here at Jimmyjane felt it was important for us to provide free condoms to as many of our customers as we can to support this valuable cause.”
