HIV infections rate

It is as easy as ABC – Abstinence, Being faithful, Condoms and in that order.In the past week, news reports stated that HIV infections are increasing worldwide except for in a few places. Uganda is one of those places. Why is Uganda’s HIV infection rate dropping, from 30 percent to 6 percent? Are they handing out more condoms and getting more people to use condoms? The “experts” will tell you they don’t know why Uganda has been successful. The leaders of Uganda can tell you though. It is as easy as ABC – Abstinence, Being faithful, Condoms and in that order. Abstinence is given the first and highest priority followed by being faithful, monogamous. Condoms are stressed as only a last resort. Maybe others should follow Uganda’s successful lead, which by the way, is endorsed by President Bush. We don’t need to throw money at the symptoms of the problem. We need to alter people’s behaviour which is the problem.
