If we are sexually active, condoms and femidoms (female condom) are the single most effective way we can take control and protect ourselves from HIV. The male condom is often the most common way that we choose to protect ourselves from HIV and other STIs and to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Condoms are available at most shops and pharmacies. Free condoms can be found at clinics and other public places like toilets, bars, community halls and youth centres.
The diagram shows that by using condoms correctly and all the time puts a barrier between you and HIV. The network is broken because the condom acts as a barrier between you and HIV and cannot spread further.
