Health chiefs are made sure Brazils carnival season went off with a bang this year by handing out 84 million condoms to party goers.
The worlds biggest party kicked off in February in Rio dr Janeiro and sort of continues by towns and cities across the country.
The Ministry of Health is running its, “not without s condom” campaign in a bid to stop the spread of AIDS in a country where 630,000 people are HIV positive.
It is being targeted at 15-24 year olds, in particular young girls who, according to health minister Alexandre Padilha, are most vulnerable to HIV.
