Abstract

The Burkina Faso National AIDS Program (CNLS) estimates that the current HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in Burkina Faso is about 7%, making it the second-most affected country in West Africa. Its southern neighbor, Côte d’Ivoire, has the highest prevalence rate. Over the past fifteen years, government commitment to AIDS in Burkina Faso has intensified and condoms are increasingly accessible, primarily through a social marketing program, PROMACO [2]. It has not been demonstrated, however, that condoms reach those who need them.
