Prescription du préservatif masculin : étude qualitative sur l’opinion des médecins généralistes et sages-femmes dans l’agglomération grenobloise

Abstract : Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are still a public health issue in France with 6 000 Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cases discovered each year and an increase of bacterial infections. Despite the well-known efficiency of the male condom against STDs, it has been used less and less for several years. This study aimed at interviewing General practitioners (GPs) and midwives about the possibility of prescribing male condoms and their refund. Method: It was a qualitative study intended for GPs and midwives in and around Grenoble, France. It was led through semi-structured individual interviews. Results: 9 GPs and 5 midwives were interviewed. Primary care workers had been little informed about this new measure and they did not have much experience. This prescription has been identified as a way to convey information, to raise awareness and to make condoms easier to access by reducing their costs. The possibility of prescription for contraception was also emphasized. Moreover, it appears as a way to open discussions about sexual health which can sometimes be hard to tackle. However, in the context of the fight against STDs, this measure must be associated with education and information programs as well as easily accessible free condoms. Conclusion: In spite of a few identified obstacles and although still in its early stages, the prescription of condoms has been received positively by health workers thanks to its assets in the fight against STDs. It is associated with contraceptive actions.
