According to a condom use survey conducted by the Ghana News Agency, recent publicity highlighting that condoms protect against STDs has changed the negative perception about their use. The survey showed that the prior perception that condom use promoted sexual promiscuity no longer prevailed due to marketing that focused instead on the safety that condoms provided. The survey also indicated that condom use in Accra, Ghana, and the surrounding area increased dramatically during the weekends and holidays as compared to week days.
