HUSTON, WE NEED A CONDOM!


HUSTON, WE NEED A CONDOM! 

Billionaire philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates through the Grand Challenges in Global Health is offering a 100,000 dollar grant to whom ever can create a Condom that won’t decrease pleasure (which is biggest compliant among males) and will still reduce unplanned pregnancies, STI’s and HIV infections.


“The primary drawback from the male perspective is that condoms decrease pleasure as compared to no condom,” says the Foundation’s description of the challenge.

Submissions and more information can be found at GrandChallenges.org. How would you build a better condom? Share with us your thoughts and comments!


Check out this Youtube video on how Trojan Condoms are made.

SECOND SCREENING OF HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE

ActionRED invites you a second FREE screening of the documentary How to Survive a Plague. Food and Drink are sponsored by Avella Specialty Pharmacy

How to Survive a Plague is a story of the brave young men and women who successfully reversed the tide of an epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation and stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence. This improbable group of activists bucked oppression and, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, helping to identify promising new medication and treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time.
