里約熱內盧里奧即將迎接數以萬計的運動精英和遊客,巴西政府為免來客過度興奮,被熱血沖昏頭腦「搞出人命」,特意準備了900萬個避孕套,務求令他們有一趟「安全之旅」。

巴西衛生部近年在大型活動,如年度的嘉年華會等均有派發免費避孕套予市民,以推廣安全性行為及預防性病。有鑑於以往奧運精英們的龐大需求(2012倫奧派發了15萬個避孕套),今屆奧運亦將免費派發900萬個避孕套,其中有45萬個可持續生產的避孕套將送至奧運村中的選手村和工作人員村,其餘數百萬個則會提供予前往里約熱內盧觀賞奧運的遊客。

這些避孕套均由巴西政府營運的工廠Natex生產,他們的乳膠製避孕套以亞馬遜橡膠樹的橡膠提煉而成,安全之餘更是環保之選。政府為Natex設立了一套計劃,保持熱帶雨林可以持續使用,以及保護該帶的生態環境。阿克雷州的橡膠工人近十年來一直奮力保衛該帶的生態環境,打擊一些非法砍伐樹林取地,用以營運牧場、大豆農場等。
