Eachyear, over 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases arecontracted and AIDS. Half of these new infections occur among peoplebetween 15-24 years of age (Salina, 2014). Condoms play a crucialrole in the prevention of the spread of these diseases. Condom useamong young adults and adolescents has been low. Effortless access tocondoms has been a big challenge for young adults especially thosewho are sexually active. Therefore, those measures taken to increasethe access and availability of condoms are vital. Condom dispenserscan prove crucial in increased condom use and acquisition.
Overthe years, the number of students engaging in alcoholism and drugabuse has risen. These two behaviors predispose the ones involved inincreased chances of engaging in sexual activities (Buckley, 2013).On the other hand, the number of abortion cases has been on the risein the recent past. All these cases could be prevented if there wasincreased access to condoms among the sexually active groups. Thechoice of bathrooms is ideal since most students will evadevalidation and attention of their peers.
