NICE: Sexually Transmitted Infections - Condom Distribution Schemes

NICE is consulting over proposals to provide a range of condom distribution schemes in an attempt to reduce the spread of STIs. Schemes under consideration include multicomponent schemes for young people up to the age of 25 years (where condom distribution is combined with education, information and demonstrations), single component schemes (free condoms) and cost-price sales schemes.

CMF will contribute a response emphasising the importance of behavioural change, rather than simply improved or novel means of condom distribution, as key to reducing the incidence of STIs.

Consultation closes on 16 September 2016 at 5pm

Law Commission review on surrogacy

The Law Commission is inviting views on a number of points of law as it relates to surrogacy. Issues in the law that may be in need of reform include:

  • Surrogacy and the single parent: there is no power for the court to make a parental order in favour of a single person (as opposed to a couple)
  • Parental orders: there is potential uncertainty caused by surrogates (and sometimes their husbands) being entered as parent(s) on the birth certificate of a child born as the result of a surrogacy arrangement
  • The regulation of surrogacy: a project could consider the current regulation of each aspect of surrogacy arrangements, as well as the application of the welfare (of the child) principle in surrogacy arrangements

Responses are due before 31 October 2016. Details can be found here.
