This paper examines the preventative role of condoms in the fight against HIV/ AIDS. It will be argued in this paper that because of the magnitude, severity, devastation and complexity of the HIV/AIDS pandemic there is great need to advise people to use condoms as one of the weapons in the fight against this deadly disease. The primary objective of this advice is to save human lives, though this of course quite often compromises moral standpoints. Failure to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS by all means available is like entering into a covenant with death, which may consequently lead to the eventual depopulation of Botswana.
