Condom use

What does it mean ?

This indicator measures the percentage of people who have had sexual intercourse with a partner who they were not married to or living with in the last 12 months and who used a condom in their last encounter compared with the number of respondents who had a sexual partner who they are not married to or living with in the last 12 months. This indicator measures progress towards preventing exposure to HIV through unprotected sexual intercourse among partners that are not married to each other or living together.

Why does it matter ?

Condom use is a measure of protection against HIV, particularly among those with multiple sexual partners. An increase in the number of people reporting condom use indicates the success of condom promotion campaigns. It shows that they are having the desired effect among main target groups. This indicator is considered adequate to address condom promotion targets as it is assumed that consistent condom use is also on the rise.

How is it collected ?

The preferred source of data are responses population-based surveys. Data are collected through national surveys undertaken in each country from a representative sample of households. All males and females aged 15-49 in the sampled households were asked about their sexual histories. Each respondent's sexual history is assessed to determine if they reported having sexual intercourse with a partner who they were not married to or live within the last 12 months and if they did, whether they used a condom the last time they had sexual intercourse with the same partner.

More about indicator and sources

45.8% is cited but there is no year available for this and we have threrfore not included it on this platform.

For values where sources are cited as taking place over two calendar years, we have presented the most recent year (eg. for Benin, the value is from the DHS 2011-12; the value is shown for 2012 on this platform).

More information on calculations

The indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who report using a condom the last time they had sex with a non-marital, non-cohabiting partner with the total number of respondents who reported having sex with a non-marital, non-cohabiting partner in the last 12 months. Household surveys include the US Agency for International Development–supported Demographic and Health Survey, AIDS Indicator Surveys and the UNICEF-supported Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey.
