You can now get free condoms and water-based lubricants from all Anytime Fitness Cebu branches starting October this year. This is after they signed a partnership with SafeSpacesPH.
The Memorandum of Agreement was signed by Anytime Fitness Cebu’s Area Managers Lloyd Comeling and Sheila Subang.
Under the agreement, SafeSpacesPH will set up “condoment stations” in all their branches in Metro Cebu. These stations offer free condoms and water-based lubricants. Anyone can access these condoment stations from the four Anytime Fitness branches— Cebu IT Park, Cebu Business Park, Escario, and Oakridge in Mandaue.
The “neighborhood 24-hour gym” is already a partner in Metro Manila. Now, they are SafeSpacesPH’s first partner in the Visayas.
“Condom use remains to be the most effective way to prevent the transmission of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI). We can stop spreading the virus by making it more accessible for everyone without judgment when they buy it from stores. We need more establishments like Anytime Fitness, and we are working to add more to the list,” Robin Avorque, the Program Officer for SafeSpacesPH, stressed.
SafeSpacesPH is a program by LoveYourself Inc in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH). It is designed to provide young professionals access to free condoms and lubes through partnering with establishments who promote safe sex.
You can download the SafeSpacesPH app from Google Playstore or App Store for free to get a list of SafeSpaces Partner establishments near you.
