This report examines a number of success stories in the fight against HIV. Examples come from countries such as Zimbabwe, Myanmar, Nigeria and the Caribbean region. These countries' governments, civil societies and the private sector have united to educate the public and to empower individuals, especially women, to insist on their right to protect their health through correct and consistent condom use.

The report stresses the importance of comprehensive male and female condom programming. This could be achieved through developing strategies and programmes through which every sexually active person at risk of HIV or other sexually transmitted infections has the information, access and motivation to use good quality condoms.
