This article is a study on how HIV rates in Zimbabwe have fallen and the underlying cause:
Now, why did I bring this up? Well, we all know that the liberal approach to curbing the proliferation of HIV is to provide condoms to the public. We also know that the Vatican and other conservative groups are vehemently against this idea and desire to solve the problem by reducing promiscuous behavior and promoting abstention.Change in sex habits 'cut HIV'
However, it postulated that a significant fall in infection rates in Uganda in the 1990s came after sexual behaviour changes.
Now, the purpose of this topic:
What do you think? This study promotes the conservative approach and also acknowledges the benefit of the liberal approach in dealing with it, yet each side isn't friendly with the other. Which side do you think has the right idea?
Personally, I'm on the conservative side. Promiscuous behavior is the true cause of the HIV epidemic. Condoms might have some success but it would be severely limited. Sexual responsibility is the way to go, yo!
This study shows that abstention is not an out-dated concept and that it is effective. I don't know about you guys, but in my health classes they always stress using a condom but never stress abstention. Why not!? Bah, I can't help but feel there is some bias going on.
