Abstract

Condom availability is a structural intervention that increases access to condoms. It is the most important strategy for the prevention of the sexual transmission of HIV/STDs in developing countries. While it is an integral component of many prevention programs, it is considered controversial in high school settings and its role in a variety of HIV/STD prevention interventions has been understudied, understated, and/or unacknowledged. Condom availability as an HIV/STD prevention strategy needs to be reprioritized and should be considered a critical foundation of all programs to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV.
