Condom use continues to be low due the myths attached to it.
This is according to the chairperson of the World Medical Association Dr.Margaret Mugherera.
She also says that many people think that the condoms cause discomfort and end up engaging in risky sexual behavior.
She however says all this can be changed if the ministry of health steps up the campaign on promotion of condom use.
She also calls upon the ministry to do more work in promoting use of the female condom that continues to receive mild response from the public.
Mungerera remarks come as Uganda joins the rest of the world to commemorate the world condom day with events held in 25 countries.
The day is celebrated on the 14th of February in other countries.
