"New Yorkers are mobile, so we need to reach them both with sexual health information and easy access to service information wherever they are," the New York Daily News quoted city Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley as saying.

"We distributed well over 36 million male condoms and 1 million female condoms last year," said Farley.
