The female condom is a safe and effective method for preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Though widely used in some countries, it is unknown in others.

In a round table discussion, women from four African countries consider its advantages and disadvantages. Their conclusion is that women should have the right to choose the form of protection that best suits them and their partners.
