Condom as No.1 choice has many varieties. Primary prevention consists of traditional “health promotion” and “specific protection.” Health promotion activities are current, non-clinical life choices. For example, eating nutritious meals and exercising daily, that both prevent disease and create a sense of overall well-being. Preventing disease and creating overall well-being, prolongs our life expectancy. Health-promotional activities do not target a specific disease or condition but rather promote health and well-being on a very general level.
On the other hand, specific protection targets a type or group of diseases and complements the goals of health promotion use. In the case of a sexually transmitted disease such as syphilis health promotion activities would include avoiding microorganisms by maintaining personal hygiene, routine check-up appointments with the doctor, general sex education, etc. this will make consumer familiar with the condom use and variety to choose the available size and type.
