The Google Ads policy on health care and medicines will change in early August 2011. The policy is changing so that ads promoting birth control and the discussion of sexually transmitted diseases or HIV will be categorized as "Family Safe." The change will affect most countries. We made this decision so that these ads can be served to a broader audience.
