From 1 April 2023, the government confirmed it will cover costs for all types of contraceptives, without age limits.

Among the eligible contraceptives are the Pill, the coil, the implant and even vasectomies. The only exception to the new law will be condoms, which are available for free in many locations across the country, such as HIV counselling offices, Family Planning centres, or the CHL.

The Ministry of Health confirmed it would be installing condom vending machines in schools and is currently working on plans to make them available free of charge.
