This chapter stresses the need to reinterpret the lower HIV rates for Uganda and examine how language is used in sexual behavior surveys. It suggests that though the Abstinence, Be Faithful, and condom (ABc) campaign has been successful in Uganda, it should not be applied throughout Africa. It discusses the substantial differences in definitions of sex and types of partners in different cultures and the predictable patterns of condom use and the reasons for the lack of use with different partners.

Keywords: HIV infection; Uganda; sexual behavior; ABc campaign; sex; sexual partner; condom use
