Description

Snake condoms are an Indigenous friendly, socially marketed condom brand. The product is the result of a PhotoVoice project piloted by the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Marie Stopes Australia (now known as Dr Marie), and the Mildura Aboriginal Health Service that took place in 2003 and involved Aboriginal youth aged 13 to 17 years.

An outcome of the PhotoVoice project and ongoing discussions with Aboriginal youth highlighted the multiple barriers to condom use for Aboriginal youth. Thus snake condoms were developed to meet the specific needs of Aboriginal youth. The condoms are advertised on radio, in the newspapers, and posters, using slogans developed by young Aboriginal people.
