    The Catholic Church's vehement stand against condoms is only partly to blame. The greater threat is the extreme machismo that runs rampant in most African cultures.

    The machismo feeds the notion that all women should be pure, true only to their one man. While many of the men migrate to work and take advantage of women (prostitutes and not) along the way. Then they bring back the infection and give it to their wives.

    The idea of not using a condom derives more from the idea that a "real man" doesn't use condoms.

    Whatever the cause though (Catholicism or Machismo), lack of condom use is definitely the top cause of the spread of HIV.
