China’s fit­ting re­sponse

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

THIS is a hard one: Zim­babwe’s health min­is­ter is com­plain­ing that con­doms im­ported from China are prov­ing too small for his na­tion’s men.

“We im­port con­doms from China and some men com­plain they are too small,” David Parireny­atwa told a re­cent HIV/Aids con­fer­ence.

He said com­fort was cru­cial. “The south­ern African re­gion has the high­est in­ci­dence of HIV and we are pro­mot­ing the use of con­doms,” he said.

Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers re­sponded by say­ing they were plan­ning to pro­duce a greater va­ri­ety of sizes.
