Women in Internally Displaced Camps are marginalized as they have little or no access to basic social services while also at a high risk of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. In addressing this issue, I visited one of the camps to enlighten the women on the Female Condom. The Women with little or no education were very surprised about the existence of a Female Condom and were very excited to try to use it especially in view of the fact that it could be won at least 6 hours before sex while also offering protection against sexually transmitted infections.Many of them expressed their fears of catching sexually transmitted infections and with the female condoms, they could wear it without their partners suspecting anything. In the midst of my discussion with the women, a group of men were coming towards me, I was very afraid as I thought they were coming to attack me, I then started educating them on Child Spacing and Sexually Transmitted Infections and to my greatest astonishment, they encouraged me to continue the discussion their Women.
Women who have been affected by conflicts are susceptible to all forms of Gender Based Violence which is aggravated by absence of means of livelihood and basic social services. Absence of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services also means that they are susceptible to unintended pregnancies hence compounding the population growth problem. In addressing these issue, Women in Internally Displaced Camps need to be able to access basic necessities such as Condom while also having a means of livelihood thereby reducing the susceptibilities of her exchanging sex for basic needs.
