SNAKE Condoms are condoms for Aboriginal youth created by Aboriginal Youth.
SNAKE Condoms were created way back in 2004 by a group of Aboriginal youth in Mildura. These condoms were created especially for Indigenous youth to feel comfortable and proud to have a condom of their very own, as Sexually Transmitted Infections and unplanned teen pregnancy are important health issues facing young Indigenous people today. Condoms are the only form of contraception that offer dual protection against both STIs and unplanned pregnancies.
To learn more about SNAKE and what makes it Australia’s first condom for young Indigenous people go to The Brand.
To learn more about the creation of SNAKE and the group of young people from Mildura who helped us make it go to SNAKE History.
SNAKE Condoms is a project that was piloted by the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Marie Stopes Australia (MSA) and the Mildura Aboriginal Health Service.
