In Apac district, women and men are wearing female condom rings as bracelets.
Health officials have raised the red flag over the misuse of female condoms saying the practice is hindering the fight against HIV/Aids.
Eunice Etap, a nursing officer at Akokoro health centre III, says most of their clients who pick up the female condoms from the health unit have abused its use.
She says instead of using the condom as recommended, men and women cut out the rings and wear on their hands as bracelets.
She adds that children are also often seen blowing the used male condoms thinking they are balloons.
During a meeting at Akokoro Sub-county headquarters on Wednesday, a man was seen happily wearing the rings.
When asked, he claimed he got the two rings from his wife.
According to health officials, since June this year, about 200 pieces of the female condoms have been distributed to the women in Akokoro Sub-county in Apac District.
