New Delhi: France is making condoms free of cost in pharmacies for people aged 18-25 in 2023, President Emmanuel Macron said. The move has been made to prevent unwanted pregnancies among young people. “It’s a small revolution for contraception,” Macron said during a health debate with young people in Fontaine-le-Comte.
Girls and women 25 and under already can get free birth control in France as part of government efforts to ensure that young people of all incomes can prevent unwanted pregnancy. Existing measures don’t apply to men, however, or specifically address access for transgender or nonbinary people.
