Abstract

The only sure method of preventing the spread of AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is to stop transmission of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus-type 1). Laboratory studies have shown that the use of condoms during sexual behavior prevents transmission of HIV. This paper explores/actors that influence condom use in response to AIDS including the role of information, perceived risk, attitudes about condom use, self-efficacy, and social support. Behavior change strategies at both the community and individual level are evaluated.
