A significant decrease in transmission of HIV in Kenya has been reported.
It’s not clear what is actually working. But combining prevention strategies of abstinence education, condom use and testing, with treatment available makes sense to me.
However, the U.S. funded program limits those under 15 year old to abstinence education alone –unless they ask. In a culture where HIV is highly prevalent and early sexuality is common and in some situations expected, we need to provide the full gamut of HIV prevention information.
The PSI policy statement doesnâ€™t own up to it’s limitations.
