Durex Inspires Youths to Make Informed Choices 2011

Dropped by Taylors Uni the other day, found this booth!

The reason behind this awareness program lies in shocking statistic regarding Malaysian youth. 

"The government has recently announced that between 2006 and 2010, there were 21 recorded cases of students who got pregnant out of marriage. Statistics from the Welfare Department revealed that this year, from January to April, 111 young girls were pregnant" SIC (Durex Press Release, 2011)

Shocking for an Islamic country, but this situation stems from our conservative nature, we do not speak about sex related issues and we are not well informed or educated about these issues. 

Durex dropped by Taylor's to not only inform but to spread the word to young people, that its okay to be open about these issues. As long as we handle them maturely. 

Durex hopes to empower youths and create awareness about sexual health and contraceptive options that leads them to make informed decisions. Themed  ‘One Voice, Prevention is Key’

So I got myself educated with the roadshow, all the information and joined the Durex Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/DurexMalaysia

With all the STD's (sexually transmitted diseases) around these days, its better to be safe than sorry. Educated and informed than regret. 

A gorgeous background in purple.
Pamphlets and brochures for further information. Its free, so just grab a couple get informed and pass it to a friend. Spread the word!
