Prescription et délivrance du préservatif masculin remboursé par l’Assurance maladie : évolution sur deux ans dans le département de la Dordogne

Abstract : Introduction: sexual health is a public health issue given of sexually transmitted infections (STIs)’s resurgence and the increase in the number of voluntary pregnancy terminations. Since December 2018, the male condom (EDEN® and SORTEZ COUVERTS®) can be prescribed by a health professional and is reimbursable up to 60% by the Health Insurance. The aim of the study is to describe the evolution of the male condom prescription and delivery after the implementation of its reimbursement by the Health Insurance. Methods: quantitative descriptive epidemiological study, conducted over a two-year period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2021, concerning people affiliated to the general social security regime, in Dordogne department, Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, from the age of 15 years. Results: the prescription and delivery of condoms has significantly increased over the period concerned, with an increase rate of + 69.86% between the second and third quarters of 2020. Young people aged 15 to 25 years were the main beneficiaries (41.95% of boxes delivered on average). Women received an average of 91.28% of deliveries compared to 8.72% for men. The majority of prescriptions were made by health establishments (hospital centers and PMI). Territorial disparities have been noted. The parallel study of the performance of screening tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infections has demonstrated an increase in the number of tests performed only for young people aged 15 to 25. Conclusion: the evolution of the prescription and delivery of male condoms is growing, but remains too low, and some populations are still not sufficiently concerned. It would be necessary to promote this measure among professionals and patients in order to extend its use.
