To help avert risk to end users and improve access to quality assured condoms, UNFPA is working to ensure the quality of condoms by including temperature tracking devices that will electronically monitor the temperature conditions of all condom shipments from the supplier's warehouse to the final destination. Monitoring temperature conditions will allow  UNFPA to discover and respond to any damage caused during the shipment and storage of the condoms.
