No one in this little town, on the road to Pokhara, can not be aware of safe sex, judging by this painted building at the towns main intersection. Everyone in this town must now know about condoms and how to use them. There is nothing half hearted about this approach to health publicity.

A funny and useful compo, well captured. I suppose it was hard to crop, and you did it great. Well seen.

A touch of humour is welcome. This problem is unversal and it is a good idea to explain in every country.
Unfortunately, the meaning of this text is not yet comprehensible...

A funny but relevant compo, showing that sign, trying to bring awareness to all strata of Nepalese society... Road signs seem to be in poor xondition!(in Goa, all road signs are sponsored by an American cola company!)Nice light, colors and sharpness..
PS... yours were actually my 10 000th points!

The only thing I miss here a bit in the scene are some poeple to make it even more lively and meaning full, the framing with the two contrasting coloring is well seen to spot out this protective advice. This kinfd of stuff you won't see in the south or it has to be an information office and still shown very discretely. An issue of great importance to reduce infections, especially the south where infection rate is the highest of the world.
Good document Kevin a very sharp clear capture

Good initiative from the local council ... as long as they teach the population on how to use them :) During the early days of birth control campain in my native country (Philippines), they distributed condoms in some remote town with little instructions. It wasn't effective because some people were putting them under the pillow instead.
Well captured daily scene ... well done! tfs

I can't read the text but it's an interesting way to deliver the message to the masses, it looks like it has been there for a while already. Unlike Henk, I don't think including people would add any value here since I doubt Nepalis perform sex in the streets...
Have a nice day,

Nice informative picture! Those condoms seem very happy. On the contrary of the poor traffic sign, which in some way is, well, not "straight and up" as the condom above ;-)
