05/01/1989 - "This study suggests that although condom availability has improved in the past year, the opportunity exists at most California public universities to increase the distribution of condoms and improve associated AIDS-related health education efforts. "
06/01/2008 - "The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has dramatically improved the prognosis for individual patients with AIDS, but it has been education and a changing attitude to condoms that has led to a progressive fall in incidence, so that the worst of the epidemic may now be over. "
09/01/1998 - "Women who were not married, who worried about both pregnancy and AIDS, who had ever had an STD, who were confident they could refuse a sexual encounter in the absence of a condom and who made family planning decisions jointly with their partner were the most likely to use dual methods rather than a single method (odds ratios, 2.0-3.5); those who considered the condom only somewhat effective in preventing AIDS or who shared economic decision-making with their partner were the least likely to use dual methods rather than a single method (0.5-0.6). "
08/01/1992 - "When used properly, condoms are highly effective in preventing both pregnancy and the spread of HIV and AIDS, the public health community has therefore strongly promoted condom use for disease prevention. "
12/01/1990 - " From experience like these, the author provides the following conclusions and suggestions: 1) people without access to social services often fail to receive AIDS education; 2) many people speak only their native language, so the conventional approach of using English -- Nigeria's official language -- proves ineffective; 3) educational forums that allow people to raise questions are the most effective; 4) the provision of additional services can help attract people in public places; 5) besides discussing the importance of condom use in AIDS prevention and family planning, a demonstration of correct condom use often makes the talks more interesting; 6) condom accessibility and acceptability can be improved by using clubs and associations as forums for AIDS education; and 7) transferring some of the responsibility of AIDS education to the members of these clubs and associations can help spread the message."
