Safe and healthy behavior in daily life is an efficient method to prevent the spread of AIDS.
On Wednesday, several non-governmental organizations and enterprises jointly launched a movement to popularize the use of condoms.
As a way to increase public awareness of disease prevention, they will provide a million free condoms to the participants of the AIDS Conference in Vienna.
Even though medical technology has rapidly developed, AIDS treatment is still very expensive.
However, preventing the disease does not cost much at all.
One of the cheapest and most effective methods is the condom.
During the World AIDS Conference, volunteers set up stalls to provide free condoms. 20-thousand condoms were given out on a daily basis. In addition, organizers gave out 15-thousand T-shirts that promote the use of condoms.
The movement was supported by the United Nations Population Fund. The international cooperation project aims to change people's behavior to prevent the spread of AIDS.
