Abstract

A survey of 759 women attending contraceptive care clinics revealed that a majority of women endorsed condom use as an important way to reduce the spread of AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome); 82 per cent reported past use of condoms, but only 14 per cent reported using condoms in addition to another form of contraception to prevent infection with sexually transmitted pathogens, including HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). Acceptance of condom advertisement, perceived male and peer acceptance of condoms, and the effect of condom use on the enjoyment of sexual intercourse predicted condom use.
