The 2019 report of the National Council for the Fight against AIDS in Senegal (CNLS), which has just been released, informs that for the prevention component in the general population and in target populations, “the main axes of intervention intended for the population have focused on communication for behavior change, the promotion of safer sex behaviors, the use of condoms and HIV testing, ”reports Vox populi in his columns.

And within this framework, there is a particular section which concerns the distribution of condoms. “An important pillar of the prevention package, the promotion of the use of condoms is an important strategy for reducing new HIV infections in a context where most of the transmission takes place through the sexual route.
