UN Bemoans Falling Use of Condoms in Africa

UNAIDS says that people in several African countries are using fewer condoms and have sex with more than one partner, threatening efforts to fight HIV

The Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) says that people in several African countries are using fewer condoms and have sex with more than one partner, threatening efforts to fight HIV.

In its annual report, UNAIDS notes that new infections in sub-Saharan Africa dropped 34 percent between 2001 and 2012.

However, the region last year still accounted for 70 percent of the estimated 2.3 million new infections with the virus.

If further states that there is evidence that the number of people who have more than one sexual partner was rising in many African countries.
