Are there 33% of young men and 20% of young women have a complete and correct understanding of HIV in Africa? I do not believe it. Counselor of STDDatingWebsite.com said most of the people with HIV do not know they have the virus, how can they completely understand it?

In todays world we can't afford to miss a single individual with the facts and myths of HIV/AIDS.

The “Condoms” strategy in the second clip is somewhat worrisome because people rarely consistently use them, no matter how young you begin "condom education". Plus, condoms fail approx. 12% of the time, and they don't even prevent certain STDs. NYC has tried flooding their city with condoms for years, yet STDs keep rising, presumably due to increased risky sexual behavior thinking they would be “safe”. Wikipedia notes: “According to Dr. Edward Green, an anthropologist at Harvard University, fidelity to one's partner was the most important factor in Uganda's success, followed by abstinence. A 2004 Science study also concluded that abstinence among young people and monogamy, rather than condom use, contributed to the decline of AIDS in Uganda.

More outreach needs to be done to educate the elderly where the rate of HIV infection is rising.
