Our consulting firm works closely with organization like UNESCO and Youth for Health in Mongolia. The encouragement of the use of condoms is unfortunately in many cases (schools, sport facilities and other youth gatherings) taboo in Mongolia, while this is one to the best preventions against HIV. It certainly could also decrease the number of teenage pregnancies and abortions dramatically.
