Department of Public Health (DPH)
Condom Ordering Policy 2019
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that HIV Prevention Programs supported by DPH funds receive priority for condom ordering and to ensure condoms are not depleted and are available throughout the year to organizations that serve HIV-positive persons and persons at highest risk of acquiring HIV infection.
To ensure that condoms are available free of charge, to HIV-positive persons and persons at highest risk of acquiring HIV infection, at all times by instituting ordering limits on agencies and individuals funded and not funded by DPH. There are some necessary policy changes for 2019 in order to remain sustainable and fairly distribute the necessary materials to all of our customers, past and future.
The following are maximum limits on the amount of condoms allowed to be ordered monthly:
Approved HIV Prevention Funded Contractors (those either funded by DPH to provide HIV Prevention Services or who receive HIV test kits directly from DPH):
Funded Agencies with Multiple Site Locations (Per Location)
Non-DPH funded organizations (Single Location)
Non-DPH funded organizations – Multiple site
Organizations that distribute condoms should explore all options for acquiring safer sex materials. These options may include commercial channels. The Community Distribution Center is not intended to be the sole source of condoms in Connecticut, even for organizations whose focus is HIV and STI prevention. Instead, the Community Distribution Center should be seen as a complement to other resources.
