For many years, governments and non-governmental organizations have promoted an ABC approach to preventing HIV and AIDS. ABC stands for Abstain from sex until marriage, Be faithful to a single partner, and use a Condom every time you have sex. ABC has some known limitations. This video discusses those limitations and additional things we can do to prevent the spread of HIV. SAVE stands for Safer practices, Access to antiretroviral medications, Voluntary counseling and testing, and Empowerment and Education. DEF stands for Disclosure in safety, Education and empowerment, and Female-controlled prevention methods. Medically performed male circumcision with counseling can also reduce the risk that men will contract HIV via heterosexual intercourse.

In this unscripted interview, Dr. Becky Kuhn discusses the factors patients say contributed to their contracting HIV. Patients have cited rejection by their families, low self-esteem, longing for love, disconnection from their religious community, alienation from God, and boredom as factors contributing to contracting HIV. Recreational use of Viagra and crystal methamphetamine may contribute to further transmission after becoming HIV positive. She also discusses how physicians can more fully contribute to their patients' well-being by talking with them about their lives as a whole and their value as a human being instead of just narrowly focusing on specific symptoms, conditions, and medications.
