Pamco Distributing Inc. was founded in the year 2000. Due to the level of unintended teen pregnancies as well as rising rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), it became essential for the government to address prevention. It is a proven fact that prevention is much more effective than the burden of infections/disease has on the Government.
Over the past twenty years Pamco has partnered with sexual wellness clinics across the country to offer products that will assist in prevention, increase awareness and education in communities, and offer unique promotional outreach programs to encourage safer sex practices. Pamco believes that knowledge is the key. Only through awareness of rising STI rates and consequences of these infections, will the focus shift.
With the ever increasing rates of STIs worldwide, including Canada, Pamco’s mission is to increase awareness of this epidemic through education and to remove the stigma and shame around sexual wellness.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) “STIs have a profound impact on sexual and reproductive health worldwide. More than one million STIs are acquired every day. In 2016, WHO estimated 376 million new infections with of STIs: chlamydia (127 million), gonorrhea (87 million), syphilis (6.3 million), and trichomoniasis (156 million).”
