The Training section of the Condom Use Toolkit contains job aids, curricula, manuals, and other training tools for condom programming and service delivery.
While the skills required for condom provision are less technical than for clinical contraceptive methods, provider still need condom training to:
  • Develop knowledge, skills, and confidence in the use of female and male condoms for prevention of pregnancy and STIs, including HIV. Training on female condoms is particularly important since they are less well known and understood.
  • Effectively counsel their clients on correct and consistent condom use
  • Implement program initiatives, including training sessions, to enable program managers, service providers, researchers, community leaders, educators, and others to successfully integrate condoms into HIV and reproductive health programs
  • Train others in interpersonal communication, risk assessment, and the use of female and male condoms
