The NYC Condom, funded by New York City's Department of Health, is a program run by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to distribute free condoms.
The NYC Condom was launched on Valentine's Day, 2007 with a highly successful city-wide media campaign including bilingual subway ads, radio spots, club launch parties, and street teams distributing the NYC Condom at high pedestrian traffic spots throughout the city.
Six months after the unveiling of the NYC Condom, the city's average monthly condom distribution increased from 1.5 million to more than 3 million condoms per month.
In 2010, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene ran a contest to design a limited edition condom wrapper. The winning entry, by designer Luis Acosta, is based on a computer's power button and began distribution in Autumn 2010.
