Consistently used condoms provide significant protection against HIV, pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The degree of protection they offer against HIV and STIs is significantly better than any other single prevention method, taken in isolation, other than sexual abstinence or complete mutual monogamy between two people who have tested negative for HIV.
AIDS is a global pandemic that has seen the development of novel and effective treatments to improve the quality of life of those infected and reduction in the spread of the disease.
While great advancements have been made in HIV/AIDS therapeutics, there is still no cure or viable vaccine in development.
Laboratory studies and product testing have shown that reputable condoms tested in the laboratory are completely impermeable to micro-organisms as small as viruses.
