In France, the free condoms in pharmacies announced yesterday by Emmanuel Macron will also be extended to minors: this is what the French president himself specified today in a video published on Twitter from Alicante, Spain, where he is for the summit of the countries of the Mediterranean Europe.

Yesterday, Macron announced that condoms will be free in pharmacies for the age group between 18 and 25 from 2023. Many, he says in the video, underlined that free of charge would also be appropriate for minors.

"And I say ok, let's do it", Macron declares in the short video posted on Twitter, paying tribute to what he considers a "very good prevention policy to allow young people to protect themselves".

In France, since 10 December 2018, condoms are already reimbursed by the

public assistance on medical prescription.

But now Macron is going much further, guaranteeing free access to all young people up to the age of 25.

A measure that, according to the first elements available to the press, concerns packs of 6, 12 or 24 condoms available in pharmacies. Yesterday, the French president said, more generally, that the "sexual health" of young people is a "real issue" to be taken seriously.

Among other things, the president mentioned the vaccination of adolescents - boys and girls - against papilloma virus infections, linked to the appearance of tumors.

"It is an enormous work of information - warned the president - we must do it in schools, we must multiply our efforts and we will do it".

And again: "I do not exclude going towards compulsory vaccination",

when you will have "the right scientific recommendations".

As for sex education, she continued, "we don't give our best on this issue. Reality - she observed - is very, very far from theory. We need to better solicit our teachers, we need to go back to sensitizing them".
