Johannesburg - The Western Cape was the province where the most condoms were distributed per adult male, the SA Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) said on Wednesday.

About 46 condoms were distributed per adult male there, followed by Limpopo with 20 and Mpumalanga with 19, the SAIRR said in a statement.

The Eastern Cape was fourth with 15, the Free State fifth at 12, and KwaZulu-Natal sixth with 11.
The Northern Cape and Gauteng, with eight condoms distributed per adult male, and the North West with six, were the bottom three.

The national average hovered around 16 condoms per adult male.

"The condom distribution target was missed by 60% in the 2011/12 financial year," according to the institute.

"Some 399 million condoms, both male and female, were distributed, against a target of just over one billion."

SAIRR researcher Lerato Moloi said condom distribution was likely more difficult in areas with low population density such as the Northern Cape.

"The Northern Cape, for example, has the lowest population density at three people per square kilometre. This is consistent with its low distribution rate of eight condoms per adult male.

"Gauteng, however, has a population density significantly higher than that of all the other provinces with 675 people per square kilometre, yet it has the same distribution rate as the Northern Cape."
