African HIV Activists Want a New Model for Prevention
June 11, 2012
The "ABC" message (Abstinence, Be faithful, and Condomize) that has been used worldwide to prevent the spread of HIV is being criticized in parts of Africa as ineffective.
For many groups in Africa, including faith groups, ABC is seen as not effective enough because it fails to curb the stigma of AIDS, which pushes the epidemic underground and hinders universal access to HIV diagnosis and treatment.
