We are makers of Dettol, Lizol, Harpic, and Durex, we sell more than 20 power brands across the globe. We continuously support actions against the HIV epidemic, whether it is in India, Brazil, or other nations. We did huge work in South Africa to keep girls safe in schools. We created a specific product, Durex Red, and the proceeds from its sales went into a global fund for HIV to achieve this objective.
The girls in South Africa have different challenges. There are a lot of teenage pregnancies. And the HIV rates are different from the Indian subcontinent. We had Naomi Campbell in our campaign. Along with this, we made pledges during the global citizen launch, which happened to be the 100th year of Nelson Mandela’s birthday in South Africa. We jointly announced funds for HIV, TB, and malaria. In Brazil, Mexico, the US, and the UK, through Durex, we support pride weeks and pride months, and make condoms accessible in international conferences.
