Are You a Safe Lover? [Checklist]

This checklist is part of the Safe Love campaign, a comprehensive HIV prevention campaign that addresses key drivers of HIV/AIDS in Zambia, including multiple and concurrent sexual partnerships, low and inconsistent condom use, and mother-to-child transmission of HIV. This checklist helps people determine if they are practicing safe sex. The questions include: 1. Are you having sex with more than one person? 2. Do you use a condom every time you have sex? 3. Do you know your HIV status? and 4. Do you know the HIV status of each person you have sex with? In a rapid survey of the Safe Love Campaign conducted in May 2012, it was shown that 66.5% of respondents were exposed to the Safe Love campaigns, 56% learned at least one message from the campaigns, 39% reported changing their sexual behavior as a result of the campaign, 91% felt that Safe Love messages were relevant for Zambians, and 93% reported that they had a positive reaction to the campaign’s messages.
