Objective: To analyse the trends for usage of the Condom Card Scheme amongst those between 13 – 16 in Wales and to obtain comparisons of usage amongst Local Authorities for this age group. Design: An observational cross-sectional study of the Condom Card Scheme registration data in Wales. Setting: Wales during 2012-2015. Results: During 2012 – 2015 between the age group of 13 – 16, those who were aged 16 in Wales had the highest usage rates of the Condom Card Scheme in Wales. During 2015, there was a significant association between the usage of the Condom Card Scheme for those aged between 13 – 16 in Pembrokeshire, however further research is needed to see if there are any other associations for usage, such as deprivation. Conclusion: Sexually Transmitted Infections and underage pregnancies are still a public health concern in Wales, however Public Health Wales recognised this and have implemented the Condom Card Scheme in Wales for the ages 13 – 25. The inaccuracy of the data and missing data could not provide an accurate representation of the usage and trends of the C-Card scheme in Wales, however, it is apparent that those aged 16 used the service consistently between the years 2012 – 2015. Further research is needed in order to determine if the C-Card scheme has had an influence on the sexual health outcomes of young people in Wales.
