Women were much less likely to report inconsistent use of condoms than never using them: over the course of the study, 46% of women said they used condoms ‘always’, 48% ’never’ and only 6% ’sometimes’.For the reasons described above, there is a convention to use two different words when describing the effect of prevention interventions.Another is that the HIV-positive partner will be chronically infected and so will not have the very high viral load characteristic of acute HIV infection.
The degree of protection they offer against HIV and STIs is significantly better than any other single prevention method, taken in isolation, other than sexual abstinence or complete mutual monogamy between two people who have tested negative for HIV.
The efficacy of an intervention is how well it works in a scientific trial or when people use it as indicated, i.e.
consistently; its effectiveness is how well it actually works to prevent disease or infection in a given population, given actual levels of use.
These margins of uncertainty...should represent an obligation on the part of the health ministries and all these campaigns to act in the same way as they do with regard to cigarettes, which they state to be a danger." Finding out the degree to which condoms protect against HIV is important both for HIV-negative people who want to protect themselves against HIV, and HIV-positive people who want to avoid transmitting it.
Knowing how well they protect against other STIs is important for sexual health in general and may be particularly important for people with HIV, who may be more vulnerable to the effects of certain STIs.
