  4. Beyond ABC: Newer Approaches to Preventing HIV/AIDS

ABC stands for Abstain from sex until marriage, Be faithful to a single partner, and use a Condom every time you have sex.

For many years, governments and non-governmental organizations have promoted an ABC approach to preventing HIV and AIDS. ABC has some known limitations. Becky Kuhn, M.D. discusses those limitations and additional things we can do to prevent the spread of HIV. SAVE stands for Safer practices, Access to antiretroviral medications, Voluntary counseling and testing, and Empowerment/Education. DEF stands for Disclosure in safety, Education/empowerment, and Female-controlled prevention methods. Medically performed male circumcision with counseling can also reduce the risk that men will contract HIV via heterosexual intercourse.

It's important to use condoms (rubbers, prophylactics) to help reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). These diseases include the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV (the virus that causes AIDS), chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and syphilis. You can get them through having sex -- vaginal, anal, or oral.
