The Gotcha Covered condom distribution program is designed to increase condom distribution on and around campus for UC students. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), condom distribution programs are efficacious in increasing condom use, increasing condom carrying, promoting delayed sexual involvement and reducing incidence of STI’s. Currently, students can get free condoms from the Student Wellness Center but only during business hours; which are 9am-5pm. This program allows UC students to become a certified Gotcha Covered volunteer by attending a 1-hour sexual health education workshop. Once certified, the student will be provided with a supply of condoms to have available at their residence. By displaying your Gotcha Covered sticker on your door, you're allowing students to stop by to pick up condoms, lubricant and/or information on sexual health. The workshops are taught by SWC Peer Educators or a professional staff member. To become certified, plan to attend one of the 1-hour trainings. Register with Regan.Johnson@uc.edu or just show up.
