"Literally, one size does not fit all," said Dr Peter Moodie, medical director for Pharmac, the government agency which manages New Zealand's pharmaceutical subsidies schedule. He said Pharmac would call for proposals from pharmaceutical companies about the range of condoms they could supply. This followed consultations with sexual health practitioners who criticised the tendering process because only "standard condoms" ended up being available. "We want to offer the maximum choice," Dr Moodie said yesterday. Condoms are available in supermarkets but health-card holders can save by buying in bulk on prescription. Around 7.6 million condoms are prescribed in New Zealand at an annual cost of $1.2 million under the subsidy scheme. Condom choice has been limited to three sizes but this was "the minimum acceptable" and did not necessarily meet consumer demand, Pharmac said. Guess they didn't have enough left after selling them all to Texas! [:D]

Maybe we Americans are more free, after all you don't need a prescription for condoms here.
