free condoms

Dec 20, 2008

Dear doctor,

For school I'm doing research on HIV spread in developing countries and I would like to know if free condoms can reduce the amount of HIV infected people in developing countries.

Bo Wong

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Bo Wong,

Absolutely! Prevention efforts that provide condoms and educational programs that teach proper condom use have been shown to dramatically decrease STDs, including HIV, in both developed and developing countries.
