|Samenvatting||In Burundi, several years ago, informal discussions during consultations in various associations and health centres led to a number of women raising the problem of men who were unwilling to use condoms, even when their partners asked them to. This situation was worrying for these women, more because the education they received put emphasis on the submission of women in case of sexual relations even if they knew their husbands were unfaithful. As a response, since 2002, SWAA-Burundi has included the promotion of the female condom, or Femidom, in its HIV prevention action plan. SWAA-Burundi is a Burundian not-for-profit organization created in 1992. It is a branch of the international SWAA (Society for Women Against AIDS in Africa), a pan-African NGO of women facing HIV and AIDS.|
