Controlling HIV/AIDS Transmission: Estimating Realistic Condom Requirements
Latex Condoms: Effectiveness Against HIV Transmission
Managed by John Snow, Inc., and funded by USAID, the DELIVER program's website offers two useful presentations about condoms. The first, which contains 25 slides, is a basic presentation about HIV, how it is transmitted, and how condoms work to prevent transmission of the virus. The second presentation, consisting of 24 slides, is a more technical explanation of how STI/HIV-prevention programs can plan for condom procurement and distribution, while distinguishing between condom requirements for family planning and STI/HIV-prevention programs. Both presentations can be viewed online or downloaded as PowerPoint files (in English only).

Population Reference Bureau Graphics Bank The Graphics Bank of the Population Reference Bureau currently offers users more than 20 PowerPoint presentations on HIV/AIDS, as well as many additional presentations on other health and population-related topics. The files, which users can download from the site, contain graphics for speakers, trainers, and others presenting information on population and health topics. Topics range from the HIV/AIDS demographics of each of the world’s regions, to information on AIDS orphans, to the effect of AIDS on life expectancy and population structure, and more. Users must have PowerPoint software to be able to view and use the presentations.
