HIV Pandemic Surging

December 1, 2005 marks the 18th "World AIDS Day" and this global pandemic continues to increase at varying rates throughout the world . Millions have died, millions more have the virus that causes the disease (many without even knowing it), and millions of dollars continue to be spent on drug treatments. However as you read the vast majority of the material on this epedimic particularly in the media, virtually absent from any prevention discussion is the most sure-fire way of avoiding transmission - abstinence. Educating people about refraining from having sex with multiple partners is the best way to avoid getting this killer disease. Media accounts will not state the obvious: the number one reason for the continued spread of AIDS is the rampant acceptability of casual sex throughout the current world culture.

Simply put: AIDS will not stop growing because a morally bankrupt world culture refuses to change its ways. I write this not in condemnation, but in the hope of exposing the primary prevention method that unfortunately you will hear little about in the modern world media.
