Safe sex campaigners have produced a teeny tiny condom measuring 15mm (0.6 inches) long, and 3mm (0.1 inches) wide, which they hope will be an effective tool in their campaign to boost young people’s awareness of the importance of using protection.

The average condom measures 190mm (7.5 inches) long, so while this miniature rubber sheath has a strong novelty value, it also packs a powerful message.

It was designed to emphasize the crucial role that condoms play in preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV and AIDS, which already affect millions of people worldwide.
