Mental & physical health

Get free condoms

Condoms prevent HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). They also protect against pregnancy.


The Department of Public Health offers various sizes and shapes of condoms that you can pick up for free at Health Center 1 (1930 S. Broad St.), Health Center 5 (1900 N. 20th St.), or at local community organizations.

Do You, Philly! and Take Control Philly will send condoms to any address within City limits.

Don’t forget to use lube. Lube makes condoms more effective.

Condoms for your Agency

If you would like to distribute condoms to your clients or to the community, please fax a request (PDF) to Take Control Philly on your agency or program’s letterhead to (215) 685-6798.

After we review your request, we will contact you with information about pickup or delivery.
