An Indian designer has created a shirt with emergency condoms in the collar and other condoms stiched to the fabric and sent it to the UN Secretary General to act as a reminder to people to carry out safe sex to mark World AIDS Day.
M. A. Rahman, 28, said of his condom shirt creation: "AIDS has killed more than 25 million people so far and an estimated 33.2 million people worldwide live with HIV. The world need more awareness campaign for the protection from this deadly virus.
"I hope that my condom Kurta shirt, a traditional Indian shirt, will encourage people to think about protection against unsafe sex."
He said 1,025 condoms were used in each kurta and he had posted the first one to the secretary General of the UN Ban Ki Moon hoping that he might wear it for world AIDS Day On 1st December 2009.
He added: "The UN thanked me via email and encouraged by this I also approached the Health minister of India - but they didn't pay any attention to me."
