United States First Lady Dr. Jill Biden has discussed safe sex, condoms, and dating practices during a youth empowerment event in Nairobi and Kenya.

Dr. Biden also discussed safe sex, condom use, and birth control Saturday, February 25, 2023, during the Shujaaz Konnect Festival, which is a youth empowerment event in the country, agency report said.

The MTV Staying Alive Foundation and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief collaborated to host the event, meant on teaching young Kenyans on how to avoid contracting HIV/AIDS.

Biden is in Kenya on the second and final stop of her trip to certain countries on the continent.

She stated: “These are issues that really all people need to talk about and yet, somehow, they don’t, and the consequences of not talking about it are so dire. “So I love seeing the young people here.”

One tent at the event had a questionnaire meant to start discussions, which read “What would you say if I told you I had a condom in my pocket right now?”

Biden said: “And this is the first time they’re meeting?

“I’m surprised you don’t start with like, ‘What’s your biggest achievement?’ rather than, ‘I have a condom in my pocket.’ ”

The American First Lady was in Namibia and Kenya to promote the programme besides another programme, which helps women as well as young people to acquire practical skills that will help them in developing a business.
