The Protection Connection
"Abstinence is Best, Protection is Next"
One out of four teens in the United States becomes infected with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) each year. By the age of 25, half of all sexually active young adults will get an STI (American Social Health Organization, 2005). It is important students receive accurate information about STIs as well as how to protect themselves from contracting an infection. Want more statistics about STI's? Check out the American Social Health Association to get more or visit the Protection Connection.
The purpose of the Protection Connection, located in the Health Center, is to provide safer sex supplies to students at a very low cost. Also, as part of the HOPE peer education program, we are able to provide students with accurate information regarding the transmission and prevention of sexually transmitted infections.
A large variety of condoms can be purchased at the Protection Connection, including Trojan, Durex, Lifestyles, and Trustex brands. Most condoms are .25 cents each. The Protection Connection also has lubricant, latex squares, and female condoms available for purchase.
Three condom vending machines are available for student use
