In the United States and throughout the world, the majority of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections are sexually transmitted.
An estimated 12 million other sexually transmitted diseases occur annually in the United States.
Avoiding sexual intercourse altogether or restricting sex to partners known to be uninfected will prevent infection; this needs to be promoted as the most effective strategy.
Studies show that correct and consistent use of latex condoms is highly effective in preventing sexually transmitted HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases.
