AIDS prevention
Part of a series on the AIDS Pandemic

In the November 27, 2004, issue of the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet, more than 150 of the world’s leading AIDS scientists and other experts in AIDS prevention and treatment signed a statement in which they declared that “the time has come for common ground” on preventing HIV/AIDS. Of the three interventions scientifically shown to prevent AIDS—abstinence, being faithful, and using condoms—they argue that the use of condoms clearly comes last and should be promoted as a first-line defense only to those in extremely high-risk groups, such as commercial sex workers.
