"STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish aid organization will roll out a new line of defense to the country's emergency services next week -- the condom ambulance.

'We need to increase the usage of condoms,' said Carl Osvald, marketing manager for the Swedish Organization for Sex Education, the non-governmental organization behind the initiative. 'It is 50 percent about pregnancy and 50 percent about sexually transmitted diseases.' "
