How it works…
• Open access distribution – access to everyone e.g.
pharmacies
• Limited access distribution – access may be limited to
organisation or institution e.g. colleges/universities, GP
surgeries
• Private – Condoms/lubricant provided to specific
populations e.g. organisations working with men and
women involved in prostitution (not published on the
website).
• For service users – No personal details
• For distributors – Easy to administer
• Simple transaction for all
