The mainland's top two universities halted an attempt by local health authorities to distribute free condoms on their campuses on Tuesday, fearing it could encourage promiscuity among students. Officials from the Bureau of Health in Beijing's Haidian district kicked-off an Aids-awareness campaign by handing out pamphlets at seven universities in the area. But as health workers prepared to distribute 2,500 condoms to students at Peking and Tsinghua universities, officials from the institutions ordered them to stop. It was agreed that the condoms could be left at campus medical facilities. A teacher from Peking University's Youth League told the Beijing Times: 'We are afraid that students will think the university is encouraging them to have sex.' Health officials met no resistance from five other universities approached.
